The Romantic Road – tours to discover the romance of the Cotswolds

The Cotswolds are unarguably romantic. From Cheltenham, England’s Regency Spa town, two Romantic Road routes introduce you to the Cotswolds along country roads leading through peaceful river valleys, country towns and villages of honey-coloured stone, complete with manor houses, churches and traditional pubs.

In an area rich in history and natural beauty like the Cotswolds, it is sometimes difficult for visitors, even those who have been before, to get to know the country roads and traditional villages. The Romantic Road provides touring routes that are easy to follow and trace the tales of the many artists, writers and craftspeople who have drawn inspiration from the Cotswolds. It shows off the loveliest villages and landscapes, reflecting the romance of their history and literary heritage.

The full colour guide to The Romantic Road, including detailed routes and map, can be purchased at Tourist Information Centres in the Cotswolds. Details can also be downloaded from the Cheltenham Tourism web site at
