Folks who live in England

My DD and I are working on our itinerary for our trip in March.  One  
of the things I really, REALLY want to do is visit the Cotswolds and  
Blenheim.  The only tour we can find in March is this one:
http://www.viator.com/tours/England/Private-Tour-Cotswolds-Oxford-and-Blenheim-Palace-Day-Trip-from-London/d731-2452PC4

Since we are only two people, it is a little pricy ($990.+).

Can anyone suggest a less expensive way to do this?  We have looked  
into taking a train from London to Oxford, but haven't figured out a  
good way to get from Oxford to Blenheim.  I cannot walk very far  
(like a few short blocks), so it's important that we find a way to  
be delivered to the palace door.

Help, please?

Thanks,

Hello Beverly,

did you ask Kate via pm? Or should I nudge her gently on Facebook? She's  
currently violently busy printing a blue crushed silk velvet with silver  
stencils, a la - uh, a bit like a Delphos dress... It just looks fabulous,  
and I'm really keen on seeing the finished dress. Anyway, you know how she  
is, with all her health issues going on, she's officially a bit forgetful.  
Don't think I want to belittle her, she said so herself, and posted a link  
to a website with symptoms of her illness. I'm very fond of her and amazed  
at what she gets done with all her ailments. And I do tell her so from time  
to time. ;-)

Hi U, I really miss Kate's posts here on alt.sewing.  I'm not on Face Book.
Hope you are having a good week!

I did, but I think Kate is still trying to get her head above water  
regarding computer connectivity.  DD and I finally found another  
tour operator, and we are all set to visit Blenheim and the  
Cotswolds.  \o/

Hi Beverly,

Sorry I haven't replied earlier, but I have been travelling.  As  
Blenheim palace is only about 10 miles from the centre of Oxford your  
best bet would be to simply take a taxi there from Oxford railway  
station or from your hotel if you are stopping overnight.

According to this site http://www.minicabit.com/blenheimpalace.php it  

you at the disabled access and pick you up from there too.

http://www.blenheimpalace.com/visit-us/access-information.html gives  
more information on accessiblity for mobility limited visitors.

Hope that helps.

Thanks so much!

We did locate a tour company which will pick us up in London, drive  
us to Blenheim, and after we are done there he will drive us around  
the Cotswolds for a few hours, then drop us in Moreton-in-Marsh for  
dinner and a train back to London.  We are beyond excited!
