Shakespeare's Gin
& Exceptional Cars

Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare, is steeped in culture and history. Set in the beautiful rural Warwickshire countryside, on the banks of the river Avon, it is one of the most important tourist destinations in the UK. Come wander through Stratford, get a taste of Olde England - and enjoy the delights not only of Shakespeare’s hometown, but also the nearby surrounding shire counties of Oxfordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire.


This 3 day holiday allows you to experience the real charm of the area. Included in the tour is a Gin Distillery tour with tasting. The Shakespeare Distillery is a new addition to the area but certainly gaining attention due to its unique approach to using local ingredients. Taste the difference during your visit.


Another inclusion is the Morgan Car Factory Tour. This is one of the finest factory tours around and, whether you are interested in cars or not, you will enjoy this fascinating experience. You may even be tempted to buy one yourself, so don’t forget your cheque book!


We always ensure there is enough free time for you to explore the local area. With Cheltenham being so close we recommend a visit.
