Bourton on the Water Gloucestershire

It doesn’t take much scratching below the surface to work out that each Cotswold town has a slightly different vibe – and Bourton-on-the-Water’s is a tourist one. If it were possible to buy a kiss-me-quick hat in this part of England, this is where you would search first. So named for the river Windrush that runs right through the centre, it's the home of five low, arched bridges in the centre of town that delight many a visitor. There are heaps of attractions here – a model village, Birdland, a motor museum (home of Brum) and a dragonfly maze – as well as all manner of touristy shops to stock up on Keep Calm and Carry On mugs and Union Jack bunting. Cream teas abound. Watch out for the annual game of Medieval Football which is played in the river – check with the tourist office for dates, and prepare to get wet.
