G&K Shared Tour

We have been working behind the scenes with Galloway to be able to offer you an even wider range of UK and Continental Holidays, this enables us to offer you more choice and some exciting NEW destinations. As these Holidays will be offered by both companies, we encourage you to book early to avoid disappointment.

Day 1

Depart home area and travel to Henley on Thames for lunch to be purchased. Afterwards we visit Wallingford, a beautiful Oxfordshire Market town. Agatha Christie lived and worked here, taking influence from local landmarks and residents in winter brook stories such as Miss Marple. More recently, Wallingford is the location of Causton in the TV series Midsomer Murders. Afterwards we depart for our hotel and arrive with time to freshen up before our evening meal.

Day 2

After breakfast travel through the beautiful Chiltern Hills to Blenhiem Palace, birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. Blenheim Palace has been used for films such as James Bond's Spectre, Cinderella, Mission Impossible Rogue, and the Royals.

B, D

Day 3

Today we travel to Abingdon for our boat trip along the Thames to Oxford. Upon arrival in Oxford, enjoy free time to purchase lunch before meeting our guide for a 1hr walking tour of the city. The streets and side streets of Oxford, combined with the iconic college buildings and their inhabitants, inspired Colin Dexter to make Oxford the base for his Inspector Morse series. Thanks to Endeavour, and Lewis and Inspector Morse before it, the city has become a byword for murderous academia and old-fashioned pubs.

B, D

Day 4

Depart for home area stopping in Windsor with opportunity to visit Windsor Great Park where Thunderbirds, Harry Potter, Midsomer Murders, Miss Marple, Bridget Jones Baby and Goodbye Christopher Robin have all been filmed.
