Full description

Starting with a pick up in Stratford-upon-Avon (Shakespeare's Birthplace Coach Terminal, 8.50AM), or Moreton-in-Marsh train station (9.30AM), set off into the rolling countryside of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  Begin with a short, countryside walk to the iconic Broadway Tower (1 mile/1.6km). Soak up the panoramic views and see if you can spot the resident herd of red deer. Walk back to the minibus (1 mile/1.6km) and drive to Broadway village, or descend into the village on foot by walking a short section of the famous Cotswold Way (1.5 miles/2.5km). Enjoy free time in the stunning village of Broadway to explore at your own leisure and grab some lunch. Travel through the scenic countryside before embarking on a beautiful circular walk (2.75 miles/4.5 km) to discover quiet, quaint villages along the Windrush Valley. Here, you'll truly be off the beaten track, discovering hidden churches, surprising history, and gorgeous Cotswold villages without the crowds of tourist hot spots.

Unwind after in the historic market town of Burford, where you can admire the historic buildings, shop for gifts or relax in a local pub or cafe. Listen to your guide’s fascinating commentary throughout the day about local life and history.

This is an excellent walking tour. Enjoy the beauty of Cotswolds with a well guided tour. Our guide, Tom, is an excellent guide. He is knowledgeable to provide all the necessary background of Cotswolds. At the same time, he is excellent trial walk guide. I highly recommend the tour.

Fantastic tour. The walking pace is rather relaxing so it's great for people who can't walk very fast. We enjoyed it greatly.
