Get away from the hustle and bustle of London and go on a literary adventure to the rural lands beyond the city! You'll hop on a bus that'll take you to the Cotswolds, a huge expanse of hills with many quaint and picturesque towns. Your first stop will Stratford-upon-Avon, which sits by the river Avon. The legendary William Shakespeare was born and raised in this town, and it's also where he was buried. You will also get to enter the house and school where he spent his formative years, and the cottage and majestic gardens of his wife, Anne Hathaway. Your tour guide will regale you with stories concerning Shakespeare's life and his work; the entire exploration of Stratford-upon-Avon is a literati's dream adventure. After a literary escapade in Stratford-upon-Avon, you'll visit two other towns in the Cotswolds. The first one is Bibury, which is known for its homegrown tea. The second (and the last stopover before returning to London) is Bourton-on-the-Water, a market town. In these towns, you'll have the opportunity to try some tea, purchase souvenirs, and take pictures to commemorate this wonderful tour. This is a must if you're a book lover and you're looking for sophistication that can't be found in the urban sprawl.
