Date Posted: 22/09/2012

Covering the wealth of history, heritage, natural and cultivated beauty of the county, Visit Oxfordshire has unveiled seven new itineraries to appeal to people organising a group visit.

With options suitable for both general and special interest groups, the itineraries include inspiration and ideas for lunch stops, afternoon tea and overnight accommodation, as well as attraction highlights.

William Morris in Oxfordshire: Visit Morris’s idyllic summer home Kelmscott Manor; Buscot House’s Faringdon Collection of painting and furnishings; plus the thatched village of Minster Lovell, whose riverside ruins recall tales of betrayal and death.

Oxfordshire for Art Lovers: Ideal for special interest parties, this group trip encompasses both Old Masters (Christ Church Picture Gallery) and contemporary modern art (Modern Art Oxford); moving on to the Ashmolean Museum’s collections.

Dukes and Lords of Oxfordshire: Explore the county’s royal links and visit Blenheim Palace, the seat of the 11th Duke of Marlborough; before visiting Broughton Castle, featured in films such as Shakespeare in Love.

Experience Oxfordshire / Stay in Oxfordshire: Targeting general interest groups, these itineraries offer something for everyone, and include visits to Stonor House with its secret priest holes, a river Thames cruise, shopping a Bicester Village, a New Theatre trip, and the River and Rowing Museum at Henley.
