Im going to be in London for a few days next month. I was wondering if going to see a few Cotswold Villages would be a good idea. Where do I take the train to from London, and how do I get between the different villages. Is there busses than run between them or can I walk? Also how many days should I set aside to experience these villages?
Thanks

Hmm. I'm not sure how you'd get there, the train doesn't really go through the cotswolds. You could go to Bristol or Bath and take day trips from there, I think there are buses.

I've been to Bourton-on-the-Water (lovely), Upper & Lower Slaughter, Bibury, Stroud and through Cheltenham and Gloucester. You could try this site for more info. And take lots of pictures, they're really very pretty (they're heavily touristed for a reason.)

check out a Rick Steves book on the British Isles. He loves the Cotswolds.
