Days Out

Ideas for custom tours

Looking for inspiration for a day out or more? Here are a few ideas for you or your group. Let me know where you want to go, or a theme, and I'll work with you (or your group leader) to put together a bespoke, personal tour.


The famous five

A tour through five famous destinations in the heart of the Cotswolds. There's a reason why these villages are so popular. Car magnate Henry Ford even tried to buy part of Bibury! This is the essential Cotswold tour, with honey coloured stone cottages, clear trickling streams and cream teas.

Places visited: The Cotswolds; Bibury, Bourton on the Water, Stow on the Wold, Broadway, Chipping Campden

The wild west

Places visited: The Wye Valley, Ludlow, Leominster, The Black and White Trail

For hundreds of years the English borders were a law unto themselves, ruled by powerful lords from enormous castles. An area of incredible beauty, step back in time to a landscape of traditional timber framed houses. Now a gourmet destination


Films in the Forest

Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Dr Who: TV and film companies have flocked to the Forest of Dean for its air of magic and mystery. Once a royal hunting ground and mined for its precious minerals, nowhere else conjures up a sense of otherworldliness like this ancient English forest.

Places visited: Forest of Dean, Clearwell Caves, Puzzlewood 


Places visited: The Cotswolds, Stroud, Painswick, Winchcombe, Bredon Hill 

Discover the ancient stories, customs and festivals of the Cotswolds, from magic stones to ghosts, witches, saints and sinners. Find out why people risk life and limb to chase a giant cheese down an almost vertical hill, and why you should never fall asleep under an Elder tree.

Magic, Myths and Legends
