Day 1

Travel to Oxford, The City of Dreaming Spire, for free time. Famous the world over for its university and historic architecture, it offers a splendid mix of ancient and modern amidst the bustling cosmopolitan town it has become. It is often the backdrop to many TV programme and films, from Inspector Morse to Harry Potter, so it is not surprising it is a magnet for tourists with the only problem being deciding what to explore first. From here we continue to our overnight hotel.

Day 2

This morning we visit Waddesdon Manor, a magnificent Grade I listed house built in the Neo-Renaissance style of a French château between 1874 and 1889 for Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild. It is home to arguably the greatest collection of art in Europe. After exploring the immense grandeur of the house, take a stroll through the landscaped grounds and impeccably manicured Victorian gardens before we head for home this afternoon.
