COTSWOLDS, BATH AND OXFORD
The rolling hills of the Cotswolds range across almost 800 square miles and five counties, encompassing spectacular views of the Severn Valley and the Vale of Evesham. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, its rare grassland and woodland habitats are peppered with quaint villages and towns of pink-coloured stone, just perfect for leisurely exploration.
On their southern edge is the world heritage spa city of Bath, renowned for its luxurious hot springs and wonderful Georgian architecture. Brimming with great shops, drinking and dining, there are also plenty of sights like Pultney Bridge, Bath Abbey and, of course, the Roman Baths to take in along the way.
Heading north-east from here leads the traveller to the city of Oxford, home to the internationally renowned university as well as Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford Castle and Christopher Wren’s Sheldonian Theatre. A few short miles further on is the magnificent Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Winston Churchill and seat of the Dukes of Marlborough.
The road to the south will carry you to the charming old market town of Abingdon-on-Thames, famous for its tradition of ‘bun-throwing’ and full of food and drink delights. Moving on further, the imposing neolithic monument of Stonehenge rises into view, a glimpse into a far different kind of England, long lost to the tides of time.
