London, United Kingdom
Over a thousand years of history are waiting to be discovered at our first destination on today’s tour, the medieval Warwick Castle. Set against the River Avon within 64 acres of landscaped parkland, this beautiful castle once belonged to the most powerful man in England, The Earl of Warwick.
Learn how the ‘Kingmaker’ was the only man who dared defy the King, and how he defeated the armies of King Edward IV in battle before taking the King himself as a prisoner. Explore the lavishly decorated State Rooms and 17th-century Great Hall; a room boasting an impressive collection of artefacts including suits of armour and medieval weapons.
Our second destination is the picturesque market town of Stratford Upon Avon is most famous for being the birthplace of William Shakespeare, widely regarded to be the greatest writer in English literature and the world’s preeminent dramatist. Here, you’ll visit the 16th-century half-timbered house where Shakespeare was born in 1564 and grew up. Enjoy a fascinating insight into tales of his family life and admire rare artefacts on displays from the Shakespeare Trust’s world-class collections.
Covering almost 800 square miles and no fewer than five English counties, the Cotswolds are the single largest designated Area of Natural Beauty in the UK. Get your cameras at the ready as we drive through the unremittingly pretty countryside on our way to our next destination, Oxford, the city of Dreaming Spires.
Evan Evans requirement was for non-English guests to be able to enjoy a multilingual commentary in five languages, while the guide simultaneously provided a live guide commentary to guests listening to the “live channel”. Evan Evans chose Kruse Global to provide their required technology solution.
Kruse Global were the only organisation that could provide a wireless multilingual commentary solution that enabled Evan Evans guests to seamlessly transit from commentary automatically delivered by GPS delivered while on-board the coach, to the guide then manually triggering commentaries as guests were guided on walking tours through Warwick Castle, Stratford Upon Avon and Oxford.
