Description

Travel from London and spend a relaxing day exploring the quintessentially British countryside of the Cotswolds, an area known for its beautiful green landscape, charming villages and honey-colored stone cottages. This small-group tour spends the day exploring some of the highlights of the Cotswolds, as well as some of the quieter, less visited areas of countryside. The first stop of the day will be the picturesque town of Bourton-on-the-water. Affectionately known as ‘the Venice of the Cotswolds’, this pretty location is one of the most charming towns in the Cotswolds and a popular visitor destination. Take ample time to stroll along the river, wander over the small bridges and admire the stone cottages. The next stop is Stow-on-the-Wold, a jumble of ancient inns and antique shops located around the market square. Stow has been a center of trade in the Cotswolds for centuries and is known historically as the location of the last battle of the English Civil War in 1646. The town has provided inspiration to many, including JRR Tolkein, and while here there will plenty of time to explore, visit ‘England’s oldest pub’ and have a traditional British lunch.  The journey through the heart of the Cotswolds continues and the next stop is Bibury, often described as the prettiest village in all of England. Wander along the gentle river and see the iconic Arlington Row, a set of weavers cottages that are now one of the symbols of the Cotswolds, as shown in the images above. Bibury is an unmissable Cotswolds destination so you can enjoy plenty of time to explore the village. The final stop of the day is the small town of Burford, known as the ‘Gateway to the Cotswolds’. Burford is one of England’s most unchanged medieval towns where many buildings are nearly 600 years old. The magnificent church is also known as one of the most historic in the region and whilst here there will be time to visit the church, stroll along the attractive high street and explore the town. The tour returns to the Mercure Kensington, London, by approximately 5:30 pm
