There are many gardens to visit in the area including Hidcote Gardens, owned by the National Trust.
Chipping Campden is a small market town built largely by wealthy medieval wool merchants. One of the most charming and unspoilt of the Cotswold towns, it is often described as having the most perfect High Street in England, with beautiful honey coloured stone buildings dating from the 14th to the 17th centuries. The Market Hall (now in the care of the National Trust) is an imposing open sided stone arched building erected in 1627 to provide shelter for the local produce market.
Visitors are welcome in the Old Silk Mill and the workshop of Harts (Gold and Silversmiths), descendants of C R Ashbee’s Guild.
There is a wide range of interesting small shops and a variety of good restaurants, tea rooms, hotels and pubs catering for all tastes.
The Ernest Wilson Memorial Garden in Chipping Campden is open 7 days a week with free entry. Hidcote Garden, owned by the National Trust and world renowned is just two miles away and, almost opposite, is Kiftsgate Garden which is well worth a visit.
