Classic Cotswolds Private Tour

109 reviews
This private tour of the Cotswolds takes in the best of the North Cotswolds stopping at many of the places you would wish to see if you only have one day in the area. Leave all the planning to us and tour the area with a local driver-guide in and executive vehicle. <br><br>We use quiet country lanes and pass through stunning countryside and off-the-beaten track Cotswold villages. On a typical tour you will visit towns such as Broadway, Chipping Campden, Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water as well as less touristed spots such as Snowshill and Upper and Lower Slaughter. <br><br>There is the option to visit one of the many gardens or manor houses in the area and to take a lunch in a traditional pub or afternoon tea in a tearoom. All tours are private and full bespoke so we are happy to tailor the day to suit your individual needs or preferences. <br><br>Beat the crowds and enjoy the beauty of the Cotswolds on a private tour.

This gem of a museum is well worth a visit; a small quality collection of furniture that perfectly illustrates material culture. The pieces deserve to be handled and examined - and you can! The most immersive museum I have ever visited - where visitors are encouraged to touch, handle and open drawers, cupboards and sideboards, giving them the tactile joy of what it would feel like to use these iconic objects; a flavour of the eras in which they were constructed. A pearl of a place, beautifully displayed and exhibited.

This museum was one of the reasons we had travelled to Broadway and we were not disappointed - furthermore, unlike many of its sister establishments, you are actively encouraged to open draws, look a blue prints and touch many of the exhibits. Perfect if your interested in seeing how this were made from first principles. Well worth a visit.

Hidden away behind the supermarket in a crescent shaped stone building is the Gordon Russell museum. It tells the story of the family business which dominated the town centre for over sixty years. This story is told through pictures captions and some wonderful examples of Russell’s designs in furniture, and household items like radios. We were lucky enough to have a guided tour by the curator who bought the place alive with her extensive knowledge and enthusiasm for the collection. Of interest to anyone in the art and design world or people exploring the ar5s and craft influences in the region.

This small museum is tucked away on a side street in Broadway. I discovered it when I went to the grocery store. The museum faces grocery store across the courtyard. I had never heard of Gordon Russell, so I decided to check it out. It turns out that Gordon Russell was a furniture designer who lived in the Cotswolds. The museum traces his career, which spanned several decades. It starts with his early work & progresses to his later work. Examples of his different styles fill the museum. It is a very interesting museum, & worth a stop.
