The simple answer is ‘Yes’! If you are staying in London or Oxford then it is easy to reach the Cotswolds for a day trip. All you need to do is jump on a Great Western Railway train to Moreton in Marsh. If you are travelling from London, head to Paddington railway station but just make sure you get on to one of the three rear coaches (as the train splits, and the front half heads off in another direction!) The train from London takes just over an hour and a half and Oxford is a little under 40 minutes away.
So is the Cotswolds worth a visit, ‘Yes, Yes, Yes’ we are based in the largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the UK, you are guaranteed sensational views of rolling Cotswolds countryside, gorgeous villages and beautiful cottages. The area is steeped in history and it makes a wonderful change from the hustle and bustle of city life.
How about public transport? Well, speak to anyone who has visited the Cotswolds and you will soon learn how difficult it is to get around, the places we visit on our tours are off the normal tourist routes where the buses don’t visit. On our tours you can leave your worries behind and you won’t end up stranded or frustrated trying to work out how to get to the next place you want to visit. There are taxis but it is advisable to pre-book as it’s not like a big city where you can hail a cab from the corner.
Our tours are excellent value for money, for example the first stop on our Famous Cotswolds Tour, the village of Lower Slaughter would cost you approximately £20 for a taxi journey there from Moreton in Marsh, so our prices of £45 per person for 6 hours travelling to amazing locations is superbly cost effective!
