Days out Oxfordshire & Cotswolds

Cheltenham and the Cotswolds

An elegant spa town of the 18th century, host of the famous literary and jazz festivals and known for its excellent shops and cafes. It lies one hour’s drive from Oxford along the A40. En route are many lovely villages and towns notably Swinbrook, Burford, Northleach and Cirencester.

Winchester and the Whitchurch Silk Mill

An unspoilt medieval city with one of the country’s finest cathedrals. It is only one and a quarter hours’ drive from Oxford. The historic Whitchurch Silk Mill, still using its looms to make silk for the heritage and theatrical markets, stands close to main A34 road.


London Paddington is only an hour away from Oxford by train or two hours by the buses that leave from Gloucester Green throughout the day and night.
