Overview

Beyond the busy Burford High Street, in itself an historic and quaint throwback to the Middle Ages, there is a wealth of ancient facades and fascinating history. If you are planning on visiting Burford, there is no better introduction than one of our 45 minute walking tours in and around the centre of old Burford.

The Burford tour is well received for its beautiful baroque architecture in Cotswold stones. Free on your own to explore those antiques, gallery and gift shops. I found a traditional bakery shop - Huffkins which serves delicious cakes & bread. Just enjoy your afternoon tea...More

As I have already explained, Gareth Simmonds, you were looking at last season's timetable headed '2015'.

Walking tour round this small Cotswold town was worth every penny. Knowledgeable witty and pleasant guide through more than a millennium of local history.. nothing dry or dreary.. brought the place to life over the centuries. Tour not strenuous and suitable for all ages 9-99+
