Hidden Cotswolds and Cold Kings

Available November–April 2019, guests experience Cotswolds castles, villages and ancient sites with a picturesque, wintry touch.

Medieval Marvels and Movies

Eat, drink and be merry with an unforgettable dining experience at the Babberton Arms — or as your family may know it, a featured set piece in Harry Potter. Hear stories by the fire and enjoy a nightcap in the reading room. Two-course dinner and drinks included in this evening tour, available November–April 2019.


Cathedrals & Designer Outlets
For the medieval meets modern experience, this tour brings guests through cathedrals and rolling countryside views with design shops peppered in.
