Day Trips: from Oxford / Oxfordshire
Take a guided tour to Midsomer Country. Our Midsomer day tour covers a circuit of South Oxfordshire, venturing to many of the villages that have been film locations for the ever-popular series. From Oxford we visit Warborough, Dorchester and Wallingford, then on to Henley, where we stop with time for lunch. In the afternoon we return to Oxford via Nettlebed, Ewelme, Watlington, and Thame. We stop often, and take time to explore the fascinating history and traditions of this lovely area of England before returning to Oxford.
