Photo Diary | Burton-on-the-Water, Cotswolds

Burton-on-the-Water is one of the most popular villages in Cotswolds. It is often referred to as the 'Little Venice' of the Cotswolds because of a series of beautiful, low stone bridges that extend across a section of the River Windrush. The river flows through the centre of the village and is crossed by these arched pedestrian bridges. The village has a lovely little high street and a number of tourist attractions:
  • The Model Village: a replica of the village with miniature buildings where you are sure to feel like a giant.
  • The Motor Museum: whose collection includes cars, motorbikes, bicycles and some motoring memorabilia.
  • Birdland Park and Gardens: which is home to more than 500 birds including flamingos, pelicans, penguins, hornbills, cranes, ibis and a number of waterfowl.
  • The Dragonfly Maze: located near Birdland, this one is a yew hedge maze that children are sure to enjoy.
  • The Cotswolds Perfumery: where in addition to shopping you can also learn how to make perfume. Courses need to be booked in advance and I think the starter course is a day course lasting around 8 hours.
Burton-on-the-Water is an excellent base to explore Cotswolds. If you are visiting on a day trip, car parking is at Rissington Road GL54 2BN with an hour charged at £1.30 and 10 hours at £6.50.
