Itinerary

Day One

Leaving your pick-up point in the morning we'll head to beautiful Oxford, the "city of dreaming spires". Explore the colleges, such as imposing Christ Church, head to the shops of the charming Covered Market, or simply relax and enjoy afternoon tea at England's first coffee house, the Grand Cafe.

Alternatively, join our optional excursion to stunning Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. Learn how the palace survived the onslaught of 400 evacuated boys on the guided 'Palace at War' tour, marvel at the English Baroque architecture, and wander the award-winning formal gardens and 2,000 acres of 'Capability' Brown's parkland. We'll arrive back at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day Two

Find out how the intelligence produced at 'Station X' shortened the Second World War by two years on today's fascinating Bletchley Park self-guided tour, using excellent, multi-media guides. See the famous German 'Enigma' code cipher machines up close; and visit Bletchley's wartime sub-post office, believed to be an undercover mailroom with the secret address of PO Box 111 Bletchley.

In the afternoon we'll head home, arriving back in the local area by early to mid evening.
