About the trip
Our Valentine’s Weekend in Oxford is based at a Solos favourite, the 4* Oxford Belfry Hotel just outside historical Oxford. Join us for a weekend that includes dinners, disco, dancing and a day out in historical Oxford.
A WARM WELCOME
Join us on Friday night for a welcome drink, dinner and then a fun quiz hosted by your Tour Leader.
After breakfast we will transfer to Oxford where our guided tour takes us through the cobbled streets which weave their way through over 800 years of history. Here we can visit one of the oldests colleges, the Sheldonian Theatre, the Bodleian Library as well as Radcliffe Square and Camera before finishing in the Victorian Covered Market. Afterwards, there is time to explore the city’s attractions or go shopping.
If you are not in a hurry to leave, you may like to take advantage of the hotel’s leisure facilities (extra charges may apply in the spa). Rooms should be vacated by 12.00. however, luggage may be left with Reception until you are ready to leave.
Set in 17 acres of stunning gardens and grounds, The Oxford Belfry is a four star hotel in Oxfordshire that provides a perfect base for our Valentine’s weekend leisure break.
This hotel offers a contemporary restaurant and less formal brasserie style bar. Leisure facilities include a spa, gym, indoor swimming pool, steam room and sauna. WIFI is also available throughout the hotel.
All our comfortable rooms have a TV, tea/coffee-making facilities, hairdryer and an iron and WIFI

The hotel offers complimentary car parking. Haddenham and Thame Parkway Station is approximately 10 minutes drive from the hotel. Oxford Station is approximately 30 minutes drive from the hotel.
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below.
The Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual. We suggest a group collection at the beginning of your holiday to cover drivers, guides and hotel staff (including restaurant, kitchen and reception staff) of approximately £5. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of bar staff and housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (the rounding up of the drinks bill and a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, restaurants expect a 10% gratuity (do check that service has not already been added to your bill). For taxis 10% of the metered fare.
The dress code for during the day is casual. In the evenings the dress code is smart with gentlemen requested to wear a shirt and tie. Comfortable shoes for walking and sightseeing are recommended.

I was so nervous about embarking on my first Solos Holiday, but I shouldn’t have been – it was the best thing I have ever done!
Wow! Got to see the famous shipwreck beach in Zakynthos with Solos. Can’t wait to discover more of their destinations!
Our tour leader Monica was exceptional! Had such a good time and will be rebooking with Solos. Thanks for a great holiday!
Had the best time with Solos! Discovered beautiful destinations and met some lifelong friends.
