ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productPass By: University of Oxford, Oxford, Oxfordshire, EnglandThe University of Oxford is a collegiate research university in Oxford, England. There is evidence of teaching as early as 1096, making it the oldest university in the English-speaking world and the world's second-oldest university in continuous operation. It grew rapidly from 1167 when Henry II banned English students from attending the University of Paris. After disputes between students and Oxford townsfolk in 1209, some academics fled north-east to Cambridge where they established what became the University of Cambridge. The two 'ancient universities' are frequently jointly called 'Oxbridge'. The history and influence of the University of Oxford has made it one of the most prestigious universities in the world.Stop At: Warwick Castle, Warwick, Warwickshire, EnglandJourney back 1,100 years to Medieval England with a visit to magnificent Warwick Castle. Rising high above the River Avon and set within 64 acres of rolling landscaped gardens, you will have the opportunity to explore the lavishly decorated State Rooms and 17th-century Great Hall; a room boasting an impressive collection of artefacts including suits of armour and medieval weapons. Bring the history of Warwick Castle to life at the Time Tower and enter the multi-sensory Kingmaker attraction to learn more about the famous historical figures that feature throughout the incredible history of Warwick Castle. Whilst there, why not enjoy a live display of typical medieval sports such as jousting and archery?Duration: 1 hour 30 minutesStop At: Shakespeare's Birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, EnglandThis ancient market town is perhaps most famous for being the birthplace of William Shakespeare, widely regarded to be the greatest writer in English literature and the world's greatest ever dramatist.
