The Cotswold is said to be one of the most visited places in England. It is surrounded by quintessentially English towns such as:  Gloucester, Cirencester, Tewkesbury and Cheltenham.

The roads surrounding these towns are said to have existed in the time of the Roman occupation of Britain. Visit the local churches and get to know the history of this astounding region.
