Cotswolds, woodstock

Woodstock

Woodstock

A pretty town of stone built houses, interesting shops and smart hotels, and a practical centre for exploring the eastern Cotswolds and West Oxfordshire. Famous for glove-making in the C16, and for Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill (1874-1965) who is buried nearby in Bladon. There are a number of antique shops, art galleries and a fascinating museum plus a melee of delis, inns, restaurants, tearooms and coffee shops. The foodaphile is spoilt for choice.
