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.
