The Doll's House at the Tolsey Museum in Burford

Museums

Few places have as a wonderful a selection of museums as the Oxfordshire Cotswolds – most of the towns (Burford, Charlbury, Chipping Norton, Witney & Woodstock) all have museums but more surprisingly so too do many of the villages, Churchill & Sarsden and Filkins.

There are also the more specialist museums of Combe Mill and the Oxford Bus Museum, as well as special collections like that of Kelmscott Manor and of Bampton.
