Day Trips from London
We can create themed tours depending on your interests such as to the country homes of great Prime Ministers such as Churchill and Disraeli. For over a decade we’ve been going to magnificent palaces such as Blenheim or Highclere. If medieval England is more to your liking, then tours of many castles are possible such as at Windsor or Warwick. How about a trip to Shakespeare sites at Stratford Upon Avon. We also have an unmatched wealth of beautiful churches and Cathedrals or beautiful cities such as Bath, Cambridge and Winchester. How about the Roman city of St. Albans with its magnificent Abbey, ancient pubs and markets and Roman ruins. Our history goes back much further than that though with Stonehenge & Avebury being the tip of an iceberg.
Every visitor is special to us and our prime motivating factor is to give you the best holiday possible. Travel with us and experience good old fashioned British hospitality.
Ye Olde England Tours have been used by many corporate organisations as well as the British government and global political figures. We have been used by production crews for BBC and Netflix shows, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, national and international TV news, BBC TV, Comic Relief, BBC national and regional radio, LBC Radio, Harrods, Bloomberg TV, British and foreign military and the national newspapers but most of all by thousands of visitors from all over the world, every age and every background.
