About Bourton on the Water

Bourton on the Water is a beautiful Cotswold village often referred to as ‘The Venice of the Cotswolds’ or ‘Little Venice’ as it center’s around the river Windrush, a focal point for visitors who on summer days relax either side of its shallow slow-flowing waters, taking in the Cotswold air and beautiful view whilst enjoying a locally made ice-cream or perhaps a picnic.

The river is crossed by small stone ancient footbridges allowing you to cross its shimmering waters, from which resident ducks swim curiously by, and on warmer days children paddle, braving their feet and ankles into the cooling clear waters, where sometimes too dogs will playfully splash around. It really is a beautiful place to relax and enjoy with plenty to see and do there as you wonder around on foot enjoying this perfect Cotswold village setting.

Attractions in the village include the wonderful model village which is open all year round and is an exact replica of the village but everything is waist high. It even has the river running through it, a replica of the village church, streets and houses and it is all beautifully crafted and fascinating to see.

Birdland is another popular Bourton attraction, opened in 1957 there are many beautiful and exotic birds to be seen including the popular penguins and flamingos.

For anyone with an interest in cars, including toys and memorabilia, then the Cotswold Motoring Museum is a must visit with its fantastic collections including classic cars, motorbikes and caravans.
