UK - Cotswolds, from Stratford to Bath and Oxford

The Cotswolds stretch from Stratford upon Avon in the north to Bath in the south. From Gloucester in the west to Oxford in the east, the rolling hills are full of story book English villages. Then you can add Shakespeare at Stratford upon Avon, the dreaming spires and colleges at Oxford and the Georgian city of Bath. There is something different to do every day.

UK - Cotswolds, from Stratford to Bath and Oxford Stratford upon Avon Chipping Campden Broadway The Slaughters Burford Woodstock Cirencester Oxford Bath

Stratford upon Avon The birthplace of William Shakespeare and the home of the Shakespeare Theatre
Chipping Campden Perhaps the nicest of the Cotswold villages, as it is relatively unspoiled by the weight of modern tourism
Broadway Perhaps the best known of the villages, but it has had to pay a certain price in the number of gift shops that are there
Stow on the Wold A busy small town, with a charming square and a range of shops
The Slaughters The Cotswolds encapsulated, Upper and Lower Slaughter, with their manor houses and honey stone cottages
Burford The town has a steep main street, with lots of antique shops, which runs down to the river and the ancient bridge  
Cirencester The town has evolved from a Roman garrison town to a charming, well preserved market town
Woodstock Famous for Blenheim Palace and Winston Churchill's grave, the village itself also has a lot of charm
Oxford Dreaming spires, England's oldest (and best) university, the Broad and the High, the covered market and the colleges
Bath The Roman spa and the Georgian houses are the blend that attract tourists from all over the world
