Best of the Cotswolds

Undulating gracefully across six English counties, the Cotswolds region is a delightful tangle of golden-hued villages, thatched cottages, evocative medieval churches and honey-coloured mansions.


Arlington (Bibury, near Cirencester)

Bibury's most famous attraction is this ravishing row of cottages, which has featured in movies such as Stardust. They were built as a woolstore in the 14th century and converted into workers' cottages in the 17th century. They overlook Rack Isle, a low-lying marshy area once used to dry cloth and graze cattle, and now a wildlife refuge. Coach parties swarm to admire the cottages and stroll the flower-lined lane alongside them. The row decorates the inside front covers of UK passports.

Corinium Museum

(; Park St, Cirencester)

Most of this wonderful museum is dedicated to Cirencester's Roman past; reconstructed rooms, videos and interactive displays bring the era to life. Among the highlights are the 2nd-century AD Jupiter column, a carved capital depicting Bacchus and his drunken mates, and beautiful floor mosaics, unearthed locally, including a 4th-century example depicting mythical lyre-player Orpheus charming animals.
