Chipping Campden is one of the most popular tourist destinations in all of Great Britain. A place of gardens, music, and history, the city’s culture is as diverse as its attractions, its landmarks and festivals testifying to the timeless beauty and allure that Campden possesses.
Of the various gardens open to the public,
is the most well-known. Comprised of all sorts of old roses and odd plants, Hidcote is a unique, international botanical masterpiece, consistently drawing in visitors from throughout all of Europe.
Birdland Park and Gardens is also a worthwhile visit. Its greenery is suffused with hundreds of birds, including flamingos, pelicans, cranes, penguins, toucans, and parrots. With the exception of Christmas, Birdland is open year round.
The most impressive Chipping landmark would probably be St. James Church. Work began on
in the thirteenth century and it took over 200 years to complete. Standing 120 feet tall, and therefore visible from practically any vantage point in the city, centuries of renovations and upgrades have kept the church a most beautiful religious site.
, the oldest one in Chipping Campden, is a medieval display of Gothic architectural prowess.
The Silk Mill
is not only an exhibitor of old artifacts, but still produces unique, high-quality knickknacks and handicrafts.
Other sites of interest include the Broadway Tower and the Batsford Arboretum and Wild Garden.
