Winchcombe is very much a working, living place, with butchers, bakers and small independent shops lining the main street. It was capital of the Saxon kingdom of Mercia and one of the most important towns in the Cotswolds until the Middle Ages, and today the remnants of its illustrious past can still be seen.
The helpful tourist office can assist with planning an itinerary.
