Visit Burford the ‘Gateway’ to the Cotswolds. A medieval market town, Burford’s famous High Street sweeps downhill towards the River Windrush, its three-arched medieval bridge and its impressive church, with both sides of the street flanked by an unbroken line of ancient houses and shops.
Little has changed over the centuries. Burford is popular with visitors, both for its beauty and history but also for its shopping, especially antiques, galleries and boutique clothes shops, and for the wide variety of places to eat, with restaurants, pubs and teashops. Here you can stay in a hotel frequented by King Charles and Nell Gwynn, dine where Nelson dined or visit England’s oldest pharmacy, founded in 1734.
Half-way down the hill, the 16th century Tolsey building, once the meeting place for medieval merchants, now houses The Tolsey Museum, a delightful, local museum illustrating the town’s social and industrial past and the offices of Burford Town Council.
The Tolsey offers a covered market space, available from Monday to Friday. For more information on the market contact the Clerk at;-
