  4. 4. Day four

    London to Bourton on Water

    Today you head into the glorious Cotwolds with a train ride to Kingham. Mid morning our host we will meet you at the station there, brief you on the itinerary and transfer your luggage. Then you are off to walk some of the Oxfordshire Way as it threads through woodland and fields past tiny hamlets. Gawp at the marvellous view as you look over the Windrush valley before dropping down into Bourton on Water, where the river flows through the heart of the village. Sometimes described as the Venice of the Cotswolds, the village has your overnight stop located at its centre.

    7 miles (11 km)

  5. 5. Day five

    Bourton on Water to Winchcombe

    This is an idyllic day of walking as you follow the Windrush Valley this morning and discover yet more classic Cotswold villages. The footpath leads through sheltered woods before you take a very pretty descent down the Cotswold scarp with amazing views. Stop at Sudeley Castle if you wish, where many Royal tales can be told before relaxing in Winchcombe - an unspoilt small Cotswold town.

    12 miles (20 km)

  6. 6. Day six

    Winchcombe to Broadway

    Walking for much of the time below the scarp face of the Cotswolds, this is a gentle day - a lowland treasure of long views and tiny villages, of superb specimen trees and individual buildings that make you pause and wonder. There's splendour, peace and finally the bustle of Broadway where you will spend the night.

    10 miles (16 km)

  7. 7. Day seven

    Stratford on Avon

    This morning we will transfer you the short distance to Stratford where you will find your overnight stay in the heart of the riverside town. From here you can explore Shakespeare's world by visiting his family's 5 houses (entrances included), discovering the town where he grew up and enjoying one of his plays at The Royal Shakespeare Theatre.

  8. 8. Day eight

    Return to London

    Depart at your leisure.
