Many people specifically visit the United Kingdom in general because they have an interest in history. While the Cotswolds is famous for its beautiful scenery and general aesthetics, plenty of tourists are interested in exploring the area’s history and historical sites. Of course, the aesthetic aspects and historical attractions of the Cotswolds will overlap considerably. Many of the historical sites at the Cotswolds are beautiful in their own right.
At Newark Park, travelers can see a Tudor hunting lodge that dates back to 1550. The lodge overlooks a lofty cliff, and is surrounded by beautiful and well-maintained grounds. People can get a taste of the culture of those days, while seeing the natural beauty that remains and has persisted for centuries.
People that are interested in social history may want to visit the Fleece Inn. A 15th-century farmhouse like the Fleece Inn manages to communicate a great deal about the culture of the time almost immediately. The tours of the Fleece Inn will help illuminate the daily life that people back then experienced, and tourists can feel like they’re experiencing it firsthand.
Of course, many of the people that see the Cotswolds and go on Cotswolds tours from Oxford end up visiting the Berkeley Castle. Just seeing the Berkeley castle can tell people so much about military and courtly life throughout British history. The castle itself is a truly magnificent edifice that people could spend all day seeing for themselves. It’s no wonder that many people more or less base their journeys on an opportunity to see the Berkeley castle. Of course, seeing the Berkeley castle, the Fleece Inn, and Newark Park all on the same trip will allow tourists to experience many different facets of British history at once.
