Cotswold Wool Town

Burford is the first real Cotswold town reached by vistors travelling from Oxford. Contrary to what Virtual Tourist says, it is in fact in Oxfordshire, not Gloucestershire.

Between the 14th and 17th centuries there was a flourishing wool trade, which enabled the wealthy burgesses to build expensive stone houses.

These days, it is a tourist centre. The High Street is full of gift, craft and antique shops, with plenty of tea rooms, restaurants and pubs. There is a free car park - but it can be crowded in the tourist season.
