Walking Tour of Oxford
The tour will leave central London in the morning. On the way to Oxford, your first stop, just sit back and enjoy the scenery! Once you arrive in Oxford, the expert guide will take you on a walking tour through the city’s historic streets. Home to the oldest university in the English speaking world, Oxford hides beautiful architecture around every corner! Discover the magnificent Bodleian Library, Sheldonian Theatre and other ornate buildings.
Next stop on your tour is the Cotswolds village of Bampton. This idyllic village has been used extensively throughout the series of Downton Abbey and has many 17th and 18th century houses. Bampton Library was used for Downton Cottage Hospital and doctor’s surgery, St. Mary’s Church became Downton Church and Church Square and Churchgate House was used for exterior shorts of the Crawley family home! Have a walk along the street used for Downton Abbey shops and see the post office and Grantham Arms, where Tom Branson briefly lodged.
A drive through the village of Shilton will show you the The Red Lion public house, where Mr Bates went to work after he left Downton Abbey in series two of the show.
Lunch in Burford
Take a break with lunch in Burford, also known as the ‘Gateway to the Cotswolds’. A two course lunch is included in your day trip package. Burford is home to an extraordinary medieval bridge, traditional stone houses and a selection of Tudor and Georgian frontages.
Yew Tree Farm (Cogges)
The final stop on your Downton Abbey and the Cotswolds Tour is Yew Tree Farm (Cogges). We first saw this farm in series four with Mr Drewe as the tenant farmer and it has also been heavily featured in the first five episodes of season five. Hear about the developing storyline between Charles Blake, handsome government advisor, and Lady Mary, now entrusted with the running of the estate following Matthew’s death.
At Yew Tree Farm, relax with a cup of tea in the rustic cow shed Cafe at Cogges before discovering the great house and traditional farm buildings. You’ll recognise the location of the now famous ‘pig scene’, featuring the characters of Charles Blake and Lady Mary!
Once your visit to Yew Tree Farm comes to an end, the tour will return to London for approximately 6.30pm.
