Only a two-hour drive from central London, the Cotswolds have long been a popular weekend destination for the well-heeled Londoners. British celebs like Hugh Grant, Kate Moss and Damien Hirst all have country houses here. Even Prince Charles has a charity shop near Tetbury, at the Royal Gardens at Highgrove, selling a variety of local produce. The region became rich during the Middle Ages thanks to the wool trade and it has produced Europe's best wool and textiles, untill Australia and New Zealand overtook its throne. It has a very special landscape with rolling green hills, dotted by little hamlets and villages with ages-old cottages built from the local limestone. Thanks to the endurable Cotswolds stone, these villages have stayed unchanged since the Tudor times. From larger towns like Cheltenham and Cirencester to smaller towns like Burford and Stow-on-the-Wold and villages like Bibury and the Slaughters, the Cotswolds is full of charm. Some of England's oldest country-house inns and pubs, as well as best chef restaurants and farms are to be found here. Starting from the university town of Oxford, you could see pretty much in 3 days. Shakespeare addicts could also end up their route at the historic town of Stratford-upon-Avon, where the famous writer was born.
