Chipping Campden in the northern Cotswolds was a wealthy and one of the most important wool trading centres in the Middle Ages, hence the town’s name: ‘chipping’ in Old English means market or market place.
Its high street is lined with yellow limestone buildings from the local quarry and a variety of architectural styles can be seen alongside it. The centre of the town is dominated by the Market Hall with its impressive arches. It was built in 1627 by the philanthropist Sir Baptist Hicks, who also built the Almshouses, which were and are still used as the homes of 12 pensioners.
Chipping Campden is also known for holding its own Cotswold Olimpick Games since 1612, a mixture of early rural sporting events with informal, amateur sporting events for competitors, such as the Tug O’War and Shin Kicking.
Located centrally in the north of Cotswolds, with Warwickshire and Oxfordshire to its east and Worcestershire to its west, Chipping Campden is an ideal place for you to find accommodation when touring the area.

Once you’ve walked through the High Street and seen the 17th century Market Place, don’t miss the very fine St James’ Church, at the north end of town. It was built with money from the flourishing wool trade and soars over the town’s landscape with a magnificent 120-foot tower. It also houses one of the oldest altar tapestries and the largest brass in England.
