The Cotswolds
Student / Child:
 Guided day tour from Cambridge 
 'Chocolate Box Britain'   
 Visit the beautiful countryside and villages of rural England.   

The Cotswolds is one of the most beautiful regions of southern England. It is an area of upland with rolling hills, wooded valleys, tranquil streams, fields of sheep and flowers, and, the main reason for its fame and popularity, its wonderful honey-coloured stone villages.

500 years ago The Cotswolds was the centre of England's wool trade. Today it is a sleepy corner of Britain where time seems to have stood still. This is chocolate-box Britain!
