This morning we head to Oxford for a quided tour of the Mini Factory, where a mini leaves the production line every 67 minutes. Experience mini production and take a look behind the scenes with the experts. The products made by the BMW Group inspire with unique design, creativity and agility. It is exciting and fascinating to experience live production. In the afternoon we visit Burford, with its famous High Street sweeping downhill towards the River Windrush. Both sides of the street flanked by an unbroken line of ancient houses and shops, little changed over the centuries, Burford is popular with visitors, both for its beauty and history but also for its shopping, especially antiques, and for the wide variety of places to eat, with restaurants, pubs and teashops. Here you can stay in a hotel frequented by King Charles and Nell Gwynn, dine where Nelson dined or visit England's oldest pharmacy, a chemist's since 1734.
