Welcome to Oxford & the Cotswolds
Although the roads are busy in summer, it's easy to escape the tourist trail. The golden-hued Cotswolds work their finest magic when you find your own romantic hideaway. Splendid country houses lie tucked away throughout Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire, while Windsor boasts the world’s largest castle. Further west, the Forest of Dean offers the promise of outdoor adventure.
While individual destinations can be seen on easy day trips from London, both Oxford and the Cotswolds deserve several leisurely days.
