Stow-on-the-Wold is a town in the North Cotswolds in England.

Get in

Driving from Cirencester, follow the A429 (the Fosseway) North, pass through Bourton-on-the-Water and you'll reach it (after another 5km). There will be obvious signs saying you've entered the town. From the North, follow the A429 South towards Cirencester.

Buses operate to and from Moreton-in-Marsh, Bourton-on-the-Water, Fairford, Cirencester and Cheltenham during the day.

Walkers would do well to avoid the busy A429 road.

Get around

On foot's fine.


The town centre whilst small is extremely beautiful, focused around the large market square and the pretty little streets leading off it.



  • Cotswold Sweet Company, Town Square. Oldy-Worldy sweet shop with massive choice of sweets and chocolates. Also really good if you want a bit of banter with one of the friendly staff.


The Eagle And Child, The Royalist Hotel, Digbeth Street, 01451 830670. Expensive, serves food until 10PM, need reviews.


See Eat for pubs
