<OT Ping> 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:

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! Barbara in rainy, cool Central FL

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

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

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!
Beverly
