The best Cotswolds itinerary 1 day guide, covering everything you need to know to plan a day trip to Cotswolds from London by car.
Burford is one of the best Cotswold towns for a spot of antique hunting. And, as a town that has made the Forbes ‘most idyllic places to live in Europe’ list, it’s well worth a visit.
Fondly dubbed the ‘Venice of the Cotswolds’, this delightful place is one of the best Cotswold villages to visit. As its name suggests, Bourton-on-the-Water features storybook stone cottages peppered alongside the River Windrush.
The famed William Morris once referred to Bibury as ‘the most beautiful village in England’ and he was definitely on to something.
Castle Combe is a pretty village with an almost fairytale-like atmosphere with climbing ivy and colourful flowers.
Similar to Burford, the high street attracts most of the bustle. Decorated with buildings from the 14th century and upwards, it shows off several architectural styles.
