Immerse yourself in the history of the Cotswolds at one of the many Cotswolds museums, great historic houses, or just walk through the streets and down the back lanes within the beautiful Cotswold stone towns and villages.

There is so much history to take in that you’ll be sure to find a historic story that rewards your interests.

'Cotswolds' is a combination of two very old English words. Everyone's pretty much agreed that 'Wolds' are gentle hills. And most people agree that 'Cots' are sheep enclosures. So 'Cotswolds' probably just means an area of gentle hills with plenty of sheep around.

The Cotswolds hills are criss-crossed with dry stone walls. The picturesque Cotswold landscape is completed with hidden river valleys and distinctive market towns and villages made of the famous Cotswold stone. Many Cotswold villages have enigmatic names such as The Slaughters, Stow-on-the-Wold,

The famous home of William Shakespeare, Stratford-upon-Avon is forever synonymous with history and culture. Set on the banks of the picturesque River Avon it is one of the most recognisable towns in the UK. Home to Blenheim Palace, The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, and of course the Royal Shakespeare Theatre what better place to visit to learn about Olde England than here?

You can spend the day relaxing on the banks of the river or take a river cruise to really appreciate the town. If you want to learn more about the town itself then why not take the open-top tour bus which consists of 11 stops and you can hop on and off as you please throughout the day.

For a day with a bit of a difference, you can visit The Mechanical Art and Design museum, but better known as the MAD museum in Henley Street which boasts "brilliant-but-bonkers machines" made by Kinetic artists. Items on show include mechanised flipbooks and a musical typewriter.
