London is home to some of the best luxury shopping in the world with shops such as Liberty and Harvey Nichols. You’ll have a whole day to enjoy the exclusive department stores and high fashion retailers in London’s city centre. If you’ve shopped ‘til you dropped, take a break and replenish in Harrods’ famous Food Hall or have afternoon tea at Fortnum & Mason, the Queen’s grocer!

Day 2 - Oxford
Oxford is, of course, famous for its university: one of the oldest and best universities in the world. The architecture of the university’s colleges is stunning and there are plenty of beautiful and historic buildings to explore. However, there is more to buy in Oxford than academic books and university jumpers. The High Street is a haven of boutique clothing stores and antique shops while the city’s Covered Market is a legendary 1770s indoor bazaar packed with artisan grocers, independent clothing stores and vibrant cafés.

Day 3 - Stroud
The first Cotswolds town on our tour is the Gloucestershire market town of Stroud. The town is surrounded by dramatic Cotswolds countryside and hosts several fabulous festivals throughout the year which celebrate its unique arts and crafts heritage. Stroud is also known as one of the must-visit places in England for lovers of vintage shopping. Stroud is renowned for its independent shops and markets and is the best place to search out vintage treasures whether they be clothes, books, jewellery, art or antiques.

Day 4 - Blenheim Palace
Today we’ll take a break from retail therapy to enjoy one of the Cotswold’s most iconic destinations, Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire. The staggeringly beautiful palace and gardens are a true national treasure and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The grand and impressive palace, principal residence of the Dukes of Marlborough, stands in a romantic park estate which was designed by the famous landscape gardener ‘Capability’ Brown. With tours of the house, several gardens to explore and wonderful food served in the Orangery Restaurant we will spend a whole day relaxing and revelling in the splendour of this magnificent estate.
