The Burford Tour
At The Burford Tour we aim to show you how this beautiful medieval town has developed over the last two thousand years and how much of that historic past still remains. We will take you through the heart of this iconic Cotswold town and show you ancient buildings, fascinating details of the past, stories of famous people and actual artefacts you can hold and inspect.
Our tours only take 45 minutes, enough time to appreciate the important details without being overwhelmed by a mass of dates and facts. Similarly, our tour is not a sprint and though our journey is not suitable for the mobility impaired, it is downhill and on tarmac or loose gravel roads and pathways.
For those who prefer smaller, more personal groupings, you will be glad to know that for reasons of safety and information we limit our tours to a maximum of 10 guests. We run a regular timetable throughout the season. No need to book in advance, just turn up for our walk up-walk on service.
We strongly recommend that you start your visit to Burford with one of our tours. This will enable you to fully appreciate both the scope and the detail of the town before you enjoy the excellent shops, tea rooms and pubs that Burford has to offer.
All our Tours start from outside "The Mermaid" public house, on Burford High Street, close to the pedestrian crossing.
Bespoke Burford Tours start at £25, total, for one or two people. For additional persons up to 10 in total, please add £6 per person. For groups of 11 or more the starting price of £25 for the first two people is the same, but additional persons are only £5 per person extra.
So, for a group of 6, the total cost would be £49 total. For a group of 12 the cost would only be £75 in total, a saving of £10 over the previous rate. Therefore the more, the merrier!
