Travel just outside of London and you'll find two world-famous university cities - Oxford and Cambridge. Often referred to collectively as 'Oxbridge,' both places are full of beautiful architecture and plenty of history.
Start the day with a luxury coach ride to Oxford, where you can wander through stunning college courtyards, see the incredible building spires reaching for the skies, and visit the famous Bodleian Library - one of the oldest libraries in Europe.
Be sure to visit Christ Church, made famous as the setting for Hogwarts' Great Hall in the Harry Potter films.
Enjoy lunch on the coach as you travel to Cambridge. Here, you can visit the Senate House at the university, once used by the Council of the Senate and now the place where capped and gowned students officially graduate every year.
You will also visit the gold-plated Corpus Clock that shows the time by light instead of numbers - an innovation created by Stephen Hawking. Be sure to walk across the 300 year-old Mathematical Bridge as well, with a seemingly impossible curve made from nothing but completely straight boards, then head to the famous Kings College Chapel to admire stunning gothic architecture and famous artwork from Rubens.
After a day exploring these two British institutions, head back to London in time for dinner.
