Cotswolds Day Tours From London

A Choice Of Tours From London Sightseeing In The Best Of The English Countryside


Typical Cotswold Houses

Typical Cotswold Houses

The Cotswolds is a scenic area containing some of England's best countryside and it is one of the few such areas within easy driving distance of London for a day tour. A tour coach will take about 2 hours to get into the Cotswolds from London.


The lure of the Cotswolds is the English countryside and villages that you see in all the tourist promotional literature. Sleepy villages made of the local limestone with thatched or slate roofs. A pub, maybe a murmuring stream running through and a backdrop of greenery. What is more, this picture is not an out of context place put on especially for tourists, but real, living villages, covering a very wide area.

A typical Cotswold day tour from London will stop at two or three of such villages, all very different and somewhere during the day find time for a cream tea or lunch. Most will also stop at somewhere else of interest on the periphery of the Cotswolds region, Oxford, the university city and Stratford On Avon for all things Shakespeare are the most popular such stops.

In Depth Tour of Cotswolds & Stratford Tour

Many tours pass through the Cotswolds and give a tantalising glimpse of the Cotswolds, this tour gives the Cotswolds centre stage and spends all day in the Cotswold region.

Burford, Bibury, Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton on the Water are the villages that you can explore and the tour passes through many more.

Day Tour To The Cotswolds From London Blog

We find the time for a 2 course lunch included in the price of the tour at one of the villages visited.


The Cotswolds represents an area that is forever England, remaining seemingly unchanged with the passing of time. Rolling landscapes, dry stone walls, perpendicular churches and sparkling clear streams fuse with tiny villages and hamlets with their charming limestone houses, tea shops and inns.


Bibury was described as the prettiest village in Britain by William Morris and this where we take lunch.

After a short walking tour, lunch beckons with a fabulous two course lunch in the Swan hotel, situated in the centre of Bibury, overlooking the River Coln. The 17th century former coaching Inn serves a fabulous range of traditional cooking, ales and fine wines. On rare occasions an alternative may be used if the Swan cannot be used.
