Bourton on the Water Local Customs: 2 reviews and 3 photos


Our group was there one lovely summery Saturday early evening and the locals were seriously gettting right into boat races down the stream in the middle of the village - that is little boats made of all sorts of bits and pieces!

Guys in our group rushed into the local grocery store and bought some boxes of cereal and and things with lids to make cardboard boats to take part - a lot of fun going on amongst the participants and audience!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
