Discover quaint cafes and tea rooms or climb to the top of one of Oxford’s Towers and witness the breathtaking views. This afternoon we have included a visit to the famous botanic Garden which consists of three sections; glasshouses, the Walled Garden and the Lowe Garden. We then continue to our hotel.
Today we travel to nearby Blenheim Palace for a full day visit; Show Gardens, a stunning Grand Floral Pavillion, gardening talks, celebs, a Floral Art Marquee, food and drink and a vast array of gardening exhibitors ensure the annual Blenheim Palace Flower Show is a hit. Entry to the Palace, the awe inspiring birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, is also included.
