What You'll Get

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Moreton in Marsh, High St, Moreton-in-Marsh England

Heading out of Stratford-upon-Avon and into the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, we make a brief stop at the rail station in the Cotswolds town of Moreton-in-Marsh to pick up our final passengers. From here, it's a 15 minute drive to our first official stop, so sit back, get to know your fellow passengers and enjoy the views!

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: High Street Chipping Campden, Campden Mews High Street, Chipping Campden GL55 6AT England

The first stop on our Cotswolds Day Tour, Chipping Campden is a charming and typically Cotswolds market town, full of history and heritage but also home to great independent shopping and superb coffee and cake! Using the maps we provide, you'll have around an hour here to explore and discover Chipping Campden for yourself.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Dover's Hill, Chipping Campden England

From Chipping Campden, it's a short drive to our next stop, the viewpoint at Dover's Hill. This is the perfect place to explain what the Cotswolds is all about. As well as enjoying the stunning views, you'll learn about Cotswolds life and some of its more quirky traditions!

Duration: 25 minutes

Stop At: Broadway Tower, Middle Hill, Broadway WR12 7LB England

After a short drive from Dover's Hill, we arrive at Broadway Tower, where we spend around 40 minutes. Built by the famous landscaper "Capability Brown", this striking folly on top of Middle Hill has plenty of stories to tell. Enjoy stunning views of the English (and Welsh!) countryside from the ground, or climb the tower (entry fee not included) to get a higher perspective.

After Broadway Tower, we visit our "secret" Cotswolds village for around 30 minutes. This is an off-the-beaten-track location that many of our customers agree is the most beautiful village on the tour!

Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At: Stow-on-the-Wold Market Square, Stow-on-the-Wold England

The highest town in the Cotswolds, Stow-on-the-Wold is a bustling, historic market town with plenty of good shopping, and a variety of excellent places to eat lunch (lunch not included). We stop here for around 1 hour and 10 minutes, and with the maps we provide, you can explore Stow's highlights at your leisure.

Duration: 1 hour 10 minutes

Stop At: Arlington Row, Bibury GL7 5NJ England

It's a 30 minute drive from Stow-on-the-Wold to Bibury (the longest amount of time we'll spend on the minibus at one time) - but it's worth the journey! Bibury is a small but perfectly formed Cotswolds village, once described by poet William Morris as "the most beautiful in England". Join us on a tour to see if you agree!

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Bourton on the Water, Windrush river, Bourton-on-the-Water England

After Bibury, it's a 20 minute drive to Bourton-on-the-Water, our last stop before returning our passengers back to where they started. Described as the "Venice of the Cotswolds", Bourton-on-the-Water is a picture-postcard village with Cotswolds stone bridges crossing the River Windrush that runs right through the centre of the village. It's very popular with tourists, especially on a warm day when paddling in the river is the past-time of choice, but a tour of the Cotswolds wouldn't be complete without a stop here.

Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At: Moreton in Marsh, High St, Moreton-in-Marsh England

Leaving Bourton-on-the-Water behind, now it's 5pm and time to say farewell to some of our passengers at Moreton-in-Marsh station. We hope you made friends and good memories!

You don't have to end your tour where you started - if you joined us in Stratford-upon-Avon, why not spend a night or two in the pretty Cotswolds market town of Moreton-in-Marsh? We have plenty of space for your luggage, and Moreton has several accommodation options, as well as a rail station for your onward travel.

Duration: 10 minutes
