Out of Town trips

Depending on how many days you are in London it may be a shame not to take advantage of some of the great out of town excursions on offer. You can travel to Canterbury, Stonehenge, Oxford, Cambridge, Bath and Stratford all in a day from London.

Canterbury

The historic town of Canterbury is around a 45 minute train journey or an hour’s coach trip from Central London. You can spend the whole day wandering the narrow Medieval streets, the impressive Cathedral or just relax in it’s many restaurants and bars.

Stonehenge

If you are travelling to Bath you can include a trip to one of Europe’s oldest and most mysterious monument at Stonehenge. Built somewhere between 2000 and 3000bc, the huge 40 tonne stones were dragged from over 280 miles away in Wales and have been a place of pilgrimage ever since, they are still a puzzle as to the exact purpose of the site. A round trip including Bath would take roughly 12 hours.

Oxford and Cambridge

Oxford

The colleges in Oxford date back to the 13th century and among its famous students were Bill Clinton, C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien and Lewis Carroll. We take you on a fascinating walking tour, which includes visiting the Great Hall in Christ Church, where many scenes from Harry Potter were filmed. We’ll also see the Bodleian Library and the picture perfect college courtyards for which Oxford is famous.

Available by train or as part of a wider tour. See here for options on day trips to Oxford.

Cambridge

There is archaeological evidence of settlement in the area in bronze age and Roman times, and under Viking rule Cambridge became an important trading centre. The first town charters were granted in the 12th century, although city status was not conferred until 1951. Cambridge is most widely known as the home of the University of Cambridge, founded in 1209 and consistently ranked one of the top five universities in the world.
