I loved my time at this church. It was a stop on a day tour to the Cotswolds which could have been dreadful but because we went to lovely places like this church, it was a great trip. The church is layered with centuries of...More

An eye catching and beautiful church just off Burford's main street. Seemingly built out of local stone it is a stunning building in a relatively small town.

Pick up a free pamphlet for a self guided tour.We were fortunate that our guide was able to show us most of the highlights. Especially liked the embroidered hassocks done by the congregation. Some exceptional stained glass. Stroll the grounds with beautiful flowers and tombstones.

Interesting walk through churchyard and along river bank. Church has a fine steeple and tower and oversees the village. Tombstones date back centuries while the church is a fine example of perpendicular architecture.

Had a lovely walk around the grounds, with the inside of the church open up fully. Very factual and plenty of information available. Beautiful church

Very large church with wonderful stained glass windows on large ground in a beautiful village. Lots of history and great for a visit. There is a large cafe next to the church which has a great selection of food. Coffee was great.

This place is quite lovely to look at and is very well kept. The main problem is that the guide pamphlet is entirely insufficient as are the laminated information sheets. There's clearly so much to learn here, even though it is small. Worth a visit,...More

Burford Parish Church is just off the High Street and its tower is visible from most of the town. The nave was built in the 12th Century and then altered over the years as the church was extended. There are several memorials and monuments inside...More
