Burford

Burford
The Essential
Set in the Cotswolds, Burford was once a centre for the wool industry and later an important staging post for coaches. The town began to decline after 1812, when a toll road (now the A40) bypassed it. Its houses built out of local limestone and its timeless charm make it a very popular destination for tourists, both from Britain and abroad. The only main street crosses through the town, heading down to the River Windrush.
