Hello! My wife & I are making our first trip to the UK in December. On a Saturday we are going to a Madness concert in Birmingham at the Arena. We were wanting to make it a day trip to Cotswolds and then on to Birmingham from there. We are staying in London in Chiswick.
We haven’t been able to find any Cotswolds tours on a Saturday so far. Would it be best to just take a train there? If so, should we go to Moreton-in-Marsh and visit there, or are there tours we can pick up in Moreton to go see more villages, or should we just pick a village or 2 and get a taxi from Moreton?
And it looks like we’d have to take the train from Moreton to Birmingham (i mean it looks like that’s the only main Cotswolds train station)?
Just looking for some suggestions. It’s difficult to know exactly what’d be the best thing to do. Initially we thought we could hit Oxford on the way and then Cotswolds and onto Birmingham, but that looks like too much to make it to the 730 concert and grab dinner too. We both think the Cotswolds would be more interesting and a change from being in the city (London).
Thanks in advance!
