About the tour

Explore another of the beautifully preserved places that make the Cotswolds such a well loved and popular destination. Stow On The Wold is a hilltop market town with a character all its own. Built at the meeting point of several important routes and laid out around a large market square, it has always been one of the region's major centres of trade. Characterised by its many narrow alleys between the centuries old golden stone buildings, Stow is a fascinating place to stroll around with exciting new discoveries awaiting round every corner and through every archway. On our tour we will discover more about the historic markets here and devastating battles in the English Civil War, see ancient hostelries, spend some quiet moments in the peaceful churchyard and do some window shopping in the many independent businesses that draw people here from far and wide to buy local crafts, produce and antiques. Whether you are new to the Cotswolds or have already visited other locations, you will definitely not regret spending time in Stow!

Meet Ian


Hello and thanks for visiting. I’m Ian, a professionally qualified guide. I hold the Blue Badge, which is the UK’s highest tour guiding qualification and have many years’ experience guiding in both English and German. My passion is sharing places and stories with people from around the world, and helping them discover more about this country and particularly the Midlands, where I have lived for almost all my life. I have a friendly and informal style and always aim to bring history to life with anecdotes about people and events rather than just dry facts. I love the sense of community with Heygo and enjoy seeing the same people joining multiple tours. On all of my tours you can expect information, humour and friendly conversation. I want you to sit back, relax and enjoy the experience as you take a walk with your new friend in England. Wherever in the world you are from, I look forward to giving you the warmest of British welcomes.

Seemed to see things I'd missed second time round. Thank you Ian!

For me the best Heygo experience is to take a tour somewhere I have never heard of before and see whether my first impression will make me want to travel to said city. Before Ian's tour I had no idea that Stow existed. Now I not just want to travel to Stow but - if time permits - I'd travel the area around Stow as well. Very well done Ian!
