Conducted Walking Tours of Medieval Burford
Burford is one of the most unspoilt of England’s medieval towns, with hundreds of buildings listed as being of special architectural or historic interest. It has a wealth of heritage waiting for you to discover and enjoy.
Allow us to take you on a 90 minute tour of our Town whose history began some 4000 years ago with hunter gatherers. Despite being close to Roman roads and centres of Roman population they left little impression on Burford and it was the Saxons that settled (c580) here and created the Town we are today. Hear about the history and stories of the people that have lived here over the centuries, ranging from ordinary people, poor and hard working to the many famous that shaped the country we live in today.
The tour, led by our experienced guides, will start at 3pm under The Tolsey, in the centre of town and take you along its main thoroughfares and side streets finishing at the Church where services permitting, you will be escorted around this, the most wonderful of Churches.
Single £10, Couple £15, Family (2 adults and up to two children under 10) £20. These tours will operate with a minimum of 4 people at 3pm on Sunday afternoons from May to September. To book, telephone 01993 823533.
At other times, it is possible to book a 90 minute tour for a minimum of 8 people (includes the church services permitting). Price £10 per person.
