We visited Bourton-on-the-Water twice while away.
The first visit was on Sunday.
Having not visited for 19 years I was taken aback at how busy and crowded it was. We did not stay long and returned during the week when it was quieter.
Like many of the Cotswold villages one of its endearing features is the river running through the middle.
Bourton is often referred to as the Venice of the Cotswolds on the strength of six picturesque bridges across the river Windrush.
There are public houses, tea rooms, ice-cream parlours, restaurants and an abundance of shops,many owned by the people serving you.
It's origins can be traced back to Roman times and beyond.
There is evidence to suggest a Bronze age settlement (1500-700 BC)existed here.
When we returned we visited a model of the village
This was quite stunning and amazing buy will do that in the next post
For now I hope you will enjoy Bourton
