Out and about in Burford

The beautiful town of Burford is north to Oxford and considered to be the southern gateway to the Cotswolds.

The High Street slopes gently down to reveal wonderful old houses and quaint cottages with some dating back as far as the 15th and 16th century. A few of the old buildings include Old Bull Hotel and the Bear Inn and most definitely worth a visit when you are out and about in Burford.

At the bottom of the hill a three arched mediaeval bridge can be found crossing the River Windrush, an ideal place for a walk or a picnic. The Church can be found by the River Windrush and part of the tower and west doorway are Norman with the remainder of the Church dating around the 15th century.

Burford’s wealth came from the wool trade during the 14th-17th centuries and the traders would hold their meetings in the ‘Tolsey’ which is found in the middle of the High Street and where today you can find the town’s museum.

When you are out and about in Burford be sure to visit some of the traditional pubs, restaurants and antique shops and get to know some of the history behind this bustling town
