Curating The Cotswolds: Bibury

Of all the villages in The Cotswolds, Bibury has always held a special place in my heart. It has been a long-held favourite village for my family, as we used to travel to Bibury to pick up the delicious fresh local trout from Bibury Trout Farm. Nowadays, it's always a good idea to come early in the day as tourists tend to flock to the famous Arlington Row, much like the nearby geese flock to the River Coln that runs through this picturesque village!



Things To Do
  • Enjoy a delicious breakfast or afternoon tea at The Swan Hotel.

  • Take copious amounts of photos at Arlington Row; one of the most famous sites in The Cotswolds!

  • Grab an ice-cream, and sit on the banks of the River Coln (you'll also get the best photos from this viewpoint).

  • Learn about trout-farming, and pick up delicious fresh trout, at The Bibury Trout Farm.


Before You Go
  • Bibury is a very small village, with limited parking. There is free public parking available opposite the Bibury Trout Farm. We recommend that you come early, as these spots get filled up quickly!
