Day trip by comfy and spacious, with air con minibus to go hiking & sight seeing in the Cotswolds. That is the only way you can get there, no public transport go to Bibury from London.

Bibury is a charming, typically Cotswold, village just a short drive from "The Capital of the Cotswolds", Cirencester. Bibury was once described by William Morris [masked]) as "the most beautiful village in England"

The Cotswold village of Bibury

Attractions in Bibury include Arlington Row, a row of weavers cottages built of local stone next to the River Coln, the Bibury Trout Farm and the Saxon Church, the Church of St Mary.

The north Chancel wall of the Church is home to a stained glass window which was designed in 1927 by Karl Parsons and was featured in the 1992 Christmas stamp set issued by the Royal Mail.

The River Coln flows through Bibury sandwiched between the main village street and an expanse of boggy watermeadow known as Rack Isle. With Arlington Row as a backdrop, it makes one of the most picturesque scenes you will find in the Cotswolds.

The area is actually made up of two villages, Arlington on one side of the River Coln and Bibury on the other. It is one of the "must see" destinations in the Cotswolds, and has a place on the itinerary of most tourists.

    3rd time for me on this walk and it continues to be a great day out. The autumn colors were just beginning to show and we had sunshine for most of the day. My favorite bit is dipping our feet in the river Coln..... and the pub stop at the end of course :-)
