About the tour

Explore the medieval market town of Burford, which grew wealthy as a centre of the Cotswold wool trade. With its splendid golden stone cottages, grand merchants' houses, many ancient coaching inns and magnificent parish church, Burford is one of the most impressive and fascinating places in the Cotswolds. Not just about the history, the town remains a bustling local centre famous for its independent shops, tea rooms and restaurants, perfect for a bit of guilt-free window shopping on our virtual tour.

Why are they tip-supported?

Such lovely memories of Burford, passing through from Dorset to Coventry lots of times, before the M 40 opened. Very clear speaking voice, Ian, and you handled the American lady really well. I hope you carry some sort of I.D. with you for your tours.
