If you’re planning a trip to England, you may have stumbled across the South West in your search of must-see regions. Home to the Roman baths in Bath, and Shakespeare’s Stratford Upon Avon, the area offers many infamous British towns. However, one town you may not have come across is Bourton on the Water.This cozy town is nicknamed “Venice of the Cotswolds” for its beautiful river, which is enclosed by luscious stretches of grass as well as shady willow trees. The town’s natural beauty is perfect for picnics or an afternoon walk. But if you forget the picnic basket, the area has a variety of delicious eateries which offer a traditional British lunch: such as the Mad Hatter Tearooms or the Riverside Caf.Alongside its natural beauty, Bourton also contains interesting attractions. The most popular tourist spot is the Cotswold Motoring and Toy Museum. Throughout the exhibits, view a collection of vintage cars: such as a 1937 BMW 327 or a 1930 Austin Chummy. Another part of the museum showcases various toys. Get transported back to your childhood as you see antique slot cars, rocking horses, and skittle-sets. However, the museum’s biggest charm is Brum: the leading car from a T.V. show in England. Not only does the car permanently reside there, but the series is recorded there, too.Don’t forget to visit The Cotswold Pottery (the works of John and Jude Jelfs), the Cotswold Perfumery, and Birdland during your stay. While it may not be a large town, Bourton on the Water contains plenty of British charm.
