What's On In Stow On The Wold?
Situated in the heart of the picturesque Cotswolds, Stow-on-the-Wold is an historic market town which, despite its relatively small size, offers plenty in the way of heritage and tourist attractions.
For history lovers there is a large amount of old architecture, with many buildings that still stand today dating back from the 16th century and even earlier, built from the distinctive locally quarried Cotswold stone. The town is also famous for its fairs, which have been held regularly from as early as 1330. In modern times the annual horse fair which takes place on the outskirts of the town attracts visitors from all over the country, and is an important part of the Stow-on-the-Wold social calendar.
Stow-on-the-Wold also has two heritage steam railways within just a short distance, providing a fun day out for steam fanatics whilst also allowing you to sample other nearby towns such as Toddington and Moreton-in-Marsh.
The town's dependence on tourism means that there is much in the way of modern amenities, with independent boutiques alongside high street names, restaurants serving up a range of international cuisine and old fashioned pubs and guesthouses.
