Offbeat Cotswolds


Arts & Culture Experience

Offbeat Cotswolds offer walking tours of many Cotswold sites by qualified Blue Badge tour guide, Sean Callery. He loves the area so much he wrote a book about it. He offers 90-minute walking tours of towns and villages. Because of his wealth of experience he can tailor the tours to fit particular themes that interest you such as churches, literature, or the history of the area. Sean makes sure you see the parts so often missed by many tourists.

He can show you great sites and stories you will certainly find interesting. Choose from these Offbeat Cotswolds tours:

Broadway: Meet wild artists, celebrity cricketers and a drunken parson on this tour through the honey colour Cotswold stone buildings of picturesque Broadway.

Cheltenham: From spas to spies. Trace the town from backwater to the ‘Bond Street of the West’ via purging and dancing.

Chipping Norton: Find out why ‘Chippy’ walked up the hill. Meet rock stars, a skeleton army and a policeman saved by a thin skull.

Hook NortonSee the Oxfordshire pyramids and hear about a scary visit from Henry VIII plus a pioneering asylum.

Oxford: A stroll to put the wow into town and gown as we delve beyond Oxford’s famous quads, spires and towers.

Stratford-upon-Avon: Walk in Shakespeare’s footsteps and meanwhile you’ll learn about jettying and why eating birds’ nests was just what the doctor ordered!

Woodstock: This glove-making mecca has as many stories as its famous neighbour, Blenheim Palace. Meet club-wielding savages, creepy ghosts and a one-legged criminal!

As well as offering tours, if you want to learn more about the Cotswold without leaving your holiday cottage, Sean can come to you. His Cotswold Cornucopia talk can be done both in person and online. You are given a whirlwind 50 minute journey through the Cotswolds with lots of rather unexpected stories along the way.

Enjoy a tour with expert, qualified guide Sean Callery. His Offbeat Cotswolds tours cover the whole of the Cotswolds or he can lead a town walk.
