About Burford

Welcome to Burford - an historical market town in the Oxfordshire part of the Cotswolds. With a character all of its own, and a church that is considered to be one of the top 20 churches in England, the town of Burford cannot fail to interest and inspire each visitor that walks through its ancient streets.

Once a thriving wool town, Burford's main high street slopes down from the Oxfordshire A40 to a picturesque 3 arched bridge that carries traffic over the river Windrush, a beautiful little river that winds its way through the Cotswolds and onto the neighbouring Bourton on the Water. Burford has some lovely historic buildings, including 'The Tolsey' - an ancient market house where once wealthy traders would meet and do business. Pictures of England lets you explore Burford in pictures, showing you its town and unique buildings and church, and detailing much of its rich and colourful history. Please enjoy your visit.

Burford Reviews

5 stars
Review by poe(6th November 2015)

A Lovely Cotswold town near Oxford
Burford is well worth a visit, being situated just outside the beautiful city of Oxford (around a 30 minute drive) and is known as the southern gateway to the Cotswolds. The town is situated on a hill with a broad high street full of interesting boutique shops, little cafes and some charming little pubs to eat and drink in. At the bottom of the high street is an ancient bridge that crosses the pretty river Windrush. The town is full of ancient buildings, side streets to explore and an absolutely magnificent church which should not be missed.
5 stars - Excellent!
