Cotswolds Tours

Tours Of The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds: an Area of Outstanding Natural beauty that includes some of the most lovely and 'chocolate box' countryside in England. Gentle rolling hills and honey coloured limestone villages complete with churches and traditional pubs, beautiful gardens, Regency Spa towns and historic monuments can all be found here.

Which locations to include in a day tour ? You will be spoilt for choice (so why not visit for longer, we can arrange accommodation!). We will tailor your tour: why not include some of the better known attractions but do take in some of the pretty Cotswold villages, such as Upper and Lower Slaughter, Stow on the Wold or Bourton on the Water, and of course, a pub lunch.

Bourton on the Water

A truly picturesque village on the river Windrush, with traditional stone Costwolds buildings and village green. The village offers many shops, cafes and attractions and is always popular with visitors. Within easy reach of Bourton are several renowned gardens including internationally renowned Hidcote Manor and the cottage gardens and lavender fields at Snowshill Manor.

Blenheim Palace

Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, Oxfordshire is the home of the Duke of Marlborough, birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill and a World Heritage Site. Set in 2000 acres of lovely scenery, this Baroque palace offers imposing architecture and exquisite interiors, artworks and exhibitions.


Cheltenham is a large spa town with Regency architecture, including Lansdown Terrace, and several notable museums and galleries.


Lacock village dates from the 13th Century, with stone and half timbered houses. Managed by the National Trust it has featured in many film and tv programmes, including a Harry Potter film and the BBC drama Lark Rise to Candleford. Lacock Abbey is a fine country house, and the Fox-Talbot Museum is a must if you are into history of photography.

Your Cotswolds tour will be in a luxury air-conditioned vehicle, conducted by an experienced driver guide. We can pick you up from your hotel, the airport or cruise terminal, from central London or other locations, so all you have to do is sit back, relax and enjoy your own private tour!

Our customers say...
We loved the tour of the Cotswalds. David is an excellent guide. Highly recommended.
Mr & Mrs B - Houston, Texas, USA
Our family had a wonderful tour with David Stubbs from London Country Tours. David is a native of London and he is extremely knowledgeable about the city and the countryside. He picked us up right at our hotel which was so convenient. We toured Stonehenge, Salisbury and Bath, all of which were so interesting and beautiful. We could not have seen all three in one day without a private guide to take us. David also wanted to show us Windsor Castle on the way home, but unfortunately our own time constraints did not allow it. Maybe next time! We have already recommended David to friends that will be visiting London in the future!

We have engaged David Stubbs of London Country Tours on each of our last three trips to Britain and continue to be delighted with his service. His van is clean and comfortable; he's always right on time; and we can always count on him to plan interesting itineraries for us. He's an informative tour guide, giving us just the right amount of information without being too loquacious. He's eager to please, always willing to alter the tour on the fly if interesting alternatives present themselves. I am happy to give David my most enthusiastic recommendation - you won't be disappointed.
