Places to Visit in the Cotswolds Area
The Cotswolds are a region full of charm, where time appears to have stood still for hundreds of years. It has the largest number of conservation areas of any English region. It stretches from the northern gateway of Broadway often referred to as the ‘Jewel of the Cotswolds’ to the magnificent roman town and Georgian city of Bath in the south. On the edge of the region there are Shakespeare’s Stratford upon Avon, Warwick Castle, the historic Colleges and dreaming spires of Oxford, Winston Churchill’s childhood home, Blenheim Palace, the Regency town of Cheltenham and medieval Tewkesbury.
There are market towns to explore like Stow-on-the-Wold, Chipping Campden and Anglo-Saxon Winchcombe – where you’ll discover Sudeley Castle. Bourton-on-the-Water, often described as the ‘Little Venice’ of the Cotswolds, is one of the most popular tourist spots in the region being serviced by many shops, cafes, and attractions.
In the centre of the Cotswolds there are some particularly special historic towns including Cirencester, the Roman capital of the Cotswolds, Tetbury, Burford, Malmesbury, Nailsworth, Minchinhampton, Bradford-on-Avon and Chippenham.
Not only is the Cotswolds home to unspoiled heritage with communities dating back five to six hundred years, but the surrounding rolling countryside is steeped in prehistory too as it is rich. in Neolithic remains. The area is particularly famous for its ancient honey-coloured limestone, which was used to build the villages and bustling market towns. The warm, mellow colour of this stone blends perfectly with the surrounding golden green countryside — a big part of what makes the Cotswolds so breathtakingly distinctive.
So much more to explore
For lovers of the retro and vintage, the Cotswolds is a delight – full of experiences, inspiration and shops that you just can’t find anywhere else. This area will intrigue you but there is so much more to see in this country. The wonders of Stonehenge and Avebury for example and not forgetting our great Capital city London with its spectacular history and heritage. London is a diverse and exciting city with some of the world’s best sights, attractions and activities. With so much to do, it’s hard to narrow down the long list of reasons to visit. Apart from the history that abounds from Westminster to the City of London and beyond, the choices of shops, entertainment, theatres, museums, restaurants and pubs are really second to none.
