Road trips from Westfield Shepherd's Bush LondonOxford
You'll only need to drive for two hours up to the postcard-perfect villages of the Cotswolds, veering east for the ancient academy city of Oxford. Of course, Oxford is known across the globe as the home of the University of Oxford, the oldest university in the English-speaking world.
The architecture spans a number of eras, from Saxon times and beyond. While you're there, be sure to explore Oxford Botanic Gardens - a beautiful spot to really breathe in the history of the city. Fan of the arts? Well, the Sheldonian Theatre is a must-visit - as are the Oxford University of Natural History, and Christ Church Picture Gallery.
The South West - Bath, Bristol and beyond
Fancy a change of pace? Set off to traverse the wild moors and surfer-friendly bays of the southwest.
As you plan your route, be sure to take in the museums of Bristol. With a rich history spanning from the Middle Ages through to the modern day, take the time to explore the influence of Victorian engineer Isambard Brunel on the city. There is also a thriving arts and culture scene - so you'll never be stuck for activities.
Alternatively, make a splash in the waters of Bath, a spa destination since Celtic times. Featuring natural hot springs, the 18th Century architecture is featured prominently throughout this iconic city. Be sure to explore the Roman Baths museum, and once you're ready to relax - slide into the waters of the Thermae Bath Spa.
Finally, cross into Wales for the second-hand bookshop capital of the world, Hay-on-Wye - or head to Swansea’s sublime, sandy neighbour Rhossili. In Cardiff, you'll find the home of Welsh rugby, the Millennium Stadium - along with other proud Welsh cultural heritage spots.
