How to join our Go Cotswolds Day Tour from Stratford-upon-Avon

Go Cotswolds provides a free accommodation pick-up/drop-off service from Stratford-upon-Avon for passengers joining our Cotswolds Day Tours. Here is everything you should need to know…

On Wednesdays, Thursdays*, Fridays and Saturdays*: 

  • We will pick you up from your accommodation provider, or from Stratford-upon-Avon rail station, at approximately 9.00am*. 

On Sundays:

  • We will pick you up from your accommodation provider in Stratford-upon-Avon at approximately 9.15am*.

*Because we often have to make several stops to pick passengers up from different locations around the town, timings are approximate. Please be ready to depart 10 minutes before your given pick-up time. 

Returning to Stratford-upon-Avon

At the end of the tour, we return to Stratford-upon-Avon by approximately 5.30pm.

We will drop you off at your accommodation provider, or at the rail station. If you have a dinner reservation or tickets to a theatre performance, we can also drop you off in the town centre, if you prefer.

We can also drop you off at one of our other free drop-off points (Moreton-in-Marsh station, 5.00pm, or Leamington Spa station, 6.15pm) if you prefer. It’s no problem if you have luggage – we have a large luggage storage space on our minibus, so you can bring it with you!

These times are usually the latest times we will return to these locations. In case of heavy traffic or other unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, we can never 100% guarantee to be back on time, but it’s not usually a problem!
