BOURTON on the WATER & GLOUCESTER & WARWICKSHIRE RAILWAY
Sunday 22nd August 2021
Our first tour highlight is Bourton on the Water, a charming village, known as the Venice of the Cotwolds. It’s known for its low bridges and traditional stone houses. The Cotswold Motoring Museum features vintage cars and a toy collection. Birdland is home to species including parrots, owls and king penguins, plus life-size model dinosaurs. The Model Village is a 1930s scale replica of the village.
Next, it’s the Gloucester & Warwickshire steam railway. Not only does the experience of travelling on a heritage railway hauled by a steam locomotive evoke many memories, but add to this a gentle trip through the glorious Cotswold countryside and you have the prescription for a perfect day out. The 24-mile return trip between Toddington and Cheltenham Racecourse takes a leisurely hour and a half before we head for home.
