Southampton to London via Cotswolds tour itinerary

The Cotswold region is a perennially popular attraction in England, famous for its honey coloured stone villages and leafy valleys, and very easily managed in a day trip from Southampton cruise port.

 

On this transfer you will benefit from a local guide with a wealth of information about this beautiful part of the world. Your guide will introduce you to a sense of history on this fascinating historical area including how it grew up around the wool trade, and the industry's decline and preservation as a popular tourist area.

 

Your first stop will be the charming village of Bampton, used as the village of Downton from the hit TV series and forthcoming film "Downton Abbey". Around the village green you can visit the church where a lot of major events took place on screen, and also see the cottage hospital, post office and Mrs Crawley's house from the TV show.

 

Meandering lanes and rolling hills take you next to the beautiful village of Burford, where you can enjoy a guided walk by picturesque ancient stone cottages set by the River Windrush.
