The little village of Burford has changed little since its glory days at the height of the wool trade. It is a stunningly picturesque place littered with stone cottages, town houses, and Elizabethan and Georgian gems. In between is a variety of antique shops, tearooms, and boutiques that peddle nostalgia to the throngs of visitors who come here every summer. Burford’s main attraction lies in its incredible collection of buildings, including the 16th century Tolsey House, where the wealthy wool merchants held their meetings. The building now houses a small museum on the town’s history. Just off High Street you can find the gorgeous Church of St John the Baptist. Its Norman tower is topped by a 15th century steeple. Young visitors will enjoy a trip to the excellent Cotswold Wildlife Park, set around a Victorian manor house. The park is home to everything from penguins to white rhinos and giant cats.
