Burford

Oxfordshire

Burford, a hillside medieval town known as ‘The gateway to the Cotswolds.’ One of the earliest towns to be granted a royal charter in the 12th century, this Cotswold town was a strategic location for the transport of merchandise to London and the south coast ports. This beautiful town has an interesting bridge that was built in the 1530’s over the river Windrush, paid for by the wealthy wool merchants of Chipping Campden concerned about the interruption to wool traffic during time of flooding. The main high street provides a wonderful walking opportunity to view the perspective of Burford’s beautiful buildings and architecture, a photo opportunity not to miss.
