What you can expect

Spend a day soaking up the pastoral scenery and bucolic landscapes of the Cotswolds, touring picture-perfect stone villages like Burford and Bourton-on-the-Water. Sip tea in riverside cafes, enjoy lunch in an old-fashioned inn, and explore the history of this charm-soaked region.

After departing from central London, relax during the ride out of the city to your first stop in Burford. Walk alongside the River Windrush, admiring the stone facades of 15th-century buildings as you window shop your way down the high street or stop for tea near the historic priory.

Next, continue on to the enchanting town of Bibury, where the stone cottages of Arlington Row make up one of the Cotswolds' most iconic architectural features. Head to the Swan Hotel, a 17th-century coaching inn overlooking the River Coln, and enjoy a traditional English lunch of country fare, British ales, and fine wines.

From there, wind your way north, driving past more storybook villages on your way to Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold, two of the prettiest towns in the northern Cotstwolds. In each village, follow your guide on a short walk, learning about the history of these nationally cherished townships before the return ride to London.
