And a few stops in between…
The River Eye, Lower Slaughter
Looking back at those 5 days, we had a wonderful trip and some great memories.
It all started at Henley-on-Thames after celebrating a friend’s birthday in Marlow.
If you’ve never visited Henley, I suggest you do, I really don’t think there could be a town more quintessentially English if it tried.

Discovering the lesser known Cotswolds villages
Out of the eight we visited, three were reasonably quiet they were Northleach, Snowshill and Lower Slaughter.
Castle Combe was also relatively peaceful but may have been as we visited later in the day.

Oh, so English, Henley-upon-Thames

Romeo & Juliet at the RSC
As luck would have it, England was playing in the World Cup that night, so obviously it wasn’t a popular day to go to the theatre.
We managed to get two stall tickets for £25 each rather than £62.50.
British Motor Museum
Chatting to the locals
Which English county next?
An interesting read
If you're intrigued by Oxfordshire, a historic UK county, then why not check out "The Little Book of Oxfordshire". Full of facts and obscure information. It's a fun read on the region.
You won't be able to put it down. You can pick it up for your Kindle or in good old paperback.
We have a bit of an in-joke in my family, every year since I was little my Dad and I have a bet on the Oxford and Cambridge boat race. The stakes are high, we are now at 50p to win.
My Dad was born in Oxford, so there is no guessing who I have. Actually, he still owes me 50p for 2019’s outcome.
