Looking for the perfect gift for the history enthusiast? Our English Civil War tour starts a Summer evening by setting off from Bicester Heritage in our vintage Tiger Moth biplane and passes Banbury, where Oliver Cromwell is reputed to have briefed his men the night before the Battle of Edgehill. Our first turning point is the scene of the 1644 Battle of Cropredy Bridge before heading to the scene of the Civil War's first battle, at Edgehill, then returning to Bicester over Broughton Castle, a Parliamentarian stronghold besieged and captured by Royalist forces after the Battle of Edgehill. After your flight, why not take in one of the local watering holes undoubtedly used by Cavaliers and Roundheads?!
