With its splendid golden stone cottages, grand merchants' houses, many ancient coaching inns and magnificent parish church, Burford is one of the most impressive and fascinating places in the Cotswolds. Not just about the history, the town remains a bustling local centre famous for its independent shops, tea rooms and restaurants, perfect for a bit of guilt-free window shopping on our virtual tour.

Good local history and knowledge, for a look at a nice town. Shame not to get a better look at the abbey/priory building, but excellent Norman doorway which fit in with my recent studies of church architecture!
