Places to visit

The Cotswolds is home to some of the most quintessentially English villages and picturesque towns. These postcard-perfect locations are great for exploring, enjoy luxury shopping at Bicester Village or sample delicious local produce in Burford.


Burford is 20 miles west of Oxford and its vibrant high street has its very own character with a wide variety of independent shops, many of which are family run businesses. You can find excellent galleries, specialist craft and antique shops. As you would expect from a town with such an abundance of farming on its doorstep, delicious Cotswolds produce is for sale in the local deli, butcher and cheese shop.

Bicester Village

Located in the heart of the Oxfordshire countryside, Bicester Village is an open-air shopping experience home to more than 160 boutiques of world-leading brands offering their collections on sale, all year round. There are plenty of options for the hungry shopper - savour the splendour of Café Wolseley or grab a bite at Soho House & Co’s farmshop restaurant. Open seven days a week, Bicester Village offers an array of personalised services including a concierge and personal hands-free shopping.

Broadway Tower

Standing 1,024 feet above sea level, Broadway Tower is a family-owned Cotswold destination set within a 200-acre estate of parkland and sits on the second-highest point of The Cotswolds Ridge. A great English heritage experience with views of 16 counties. Get ice cream or afternoon tea from the Shepherd’s Hut or Morris & Brown tearoom.
