Cotswold Photography Tours

Our Tour Areas

We offer photographic tours in a number of Cotswold locations:

1. "The Far North East": This tour covers Broadway, Snowshill, Stanton, and Stanway. A fabulous area that mixes more "dynamic" centres like Broadway and Stow with superb tranquil Cotswold villages. The Far North East also offers superb vistas over the Cotswolds and surrounding land as well as visiting more isolated areas high up on the Cotswold escarpment. One of our personal favourites for walking tours as well as drive or drive-walk tours and offers superb photographic opportunities for those interested in landscape, architecture, people / street and wildlife photography.

2. "Classic Cotswolds": This tour covers such places as Bourton-on-the-Water (perhaps the most well known village in the Cotswolds), Lower and Upper Slaughter, Naunton and Guiting Power. A truly superb collection of Cotswold villages from the very busy Bourton to the less-visited Naunton and Guiting Power this area offers a wealth of opportunities for village, street, landscape and "open Cotswolds" photography. Best done as a drive-walk tour due to the distances between the villages.

3. "Hidden Cotswolds: This tour covers the smaller, less well visited villages of Guiting Power, Kineton, Temple Guiting, Ford and Cutsdean and is most suited to a walking tour. Take a step back in time on this "Hidden Cotswolds" tour and if you want to photograph some real gems of the Cotswolds but away from the main tourist areas then this is the tour for you! The mix of open Cotswold country and covered woodland areas makes for superb landscape and wildlife photography.

4. "Historic Cotswolds": This tour covers the fabulous area around Whithington and Chedworth, taking in the famous Chedworth Roman Villa dating back to the 4th Century. Combining a mixture of classic Cotswold landscapes, babbling streams and ancient woodlands, this is a superb photographic day out! Please note there is a reasonable amount of walking required on this tour as many of the best photographic areas are only accessible on foot.

5."Wild Cotswolds": This area lies between Bourton-on-the-Water and the main A40 route from Oxford and encompasses some fabulous Cotswold countryside including the areas around the villages of the Rissingtons and Windrush plus the wildlife-rich area of the Sherborne Estate, made famous by the "Spring Watch" television series. "Wild Cotswolds" is ideally a walking tour in order to obtain the best photographic opportunities but it can be adapted for those wishing to do a drive-walk or drive tour. Definitely one for landscape and wildlife enthusiasts!

6. "Ancient Cotswolds": This tour covers the amazing area between the small villages of Brockhampton and Sevenhampton and the ancient Saxon village of Winchcombe. The area has plenty of attractions including Sudeley Castle, the Grange at Winchcombe, Winchcombe village itself and the historic long barrow of Bela's Knap. This is a walk-only tour with some moderately strenuous terrain. But, as we know, no pain, no gain and the effort on this one is well worth it with fabulous views across Winchcombe and the Vale of Evesham!


Between them these areas cover some of the very best of what the Cotswolds has to offer photographers. However, if you would like to visit other areas of the Cotswolds please let us know and because all our tours are personalised we will be able to accommodate your requirements!

Thank you and we hope to see you soon!
