Stow-on-the-Wold is the highest town in the Cotswolds and offers great hill-top views of the surrounding countryside. The large market square is the focus of the town, with surrounding houses, pubs and shops built in the traditional Cotswold stone. According to the Guinness book of records, The Royalist Inn (now a pub and hotel) is the oldest inn in England, dating back to 947AD. The medieval market cross harks back to the days when thousands of sheep used to be herded here for sale. Unlike Bourton-on-the-Water, Stow-on-the-Wold has few actual 'tourist attractions' but still draws people in with its historic features and intriguing little shops.
