Conducted Walking Tours of Medieval Burford

Sunday Tours

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.

Individually tailored for each Group
