question, London Walks Oxford & the Cotswolds

Can you offer a recent trip report for this walk?
1. How you felt about time actually spent visiting Oxford and Cotswolds vs travel time
2. Any additional info? We will be in London during mid September.
3. We've had the opportunity to have previously done several London walks--some out of London--thank you

I'm not really sure what your questions are getting at, but here are my comments. Obviously our trip was geared around our timing and our specific trip desires, and may be different from yours.

My husband and I went to Oxford and the Cotswolds in May this year. Note that we chose not to drive in England -- all our travel was by train, bus, taxi, and walking. We took the Airline bus from Heathrow to Oxford and spent two nights in Oxford. We did the free walking tour in Oxford and just spent time wandering the streets and sticking our heads into various colleges and meandered along the river. Then we took the train to Morton-in-Marsh and the bus to Chipping Campden. We walked the Cotswold Way for three days, staying in B&Bs.

The Cotswold Way is 100 miles long and goes through gorgeous country. We chose four towns to stay in and then figured out how to travel between them. Not knowing anything about you, I'm not sure if my experiences have been helpful. There have been other posts here with suggestions on various towns to visit. It all depends on what you want to do.

You may want to look at his original first post on May 4th of this year, asking the same kind of question. Perhaps there's more detail to that post which would help you with whatever specifics he might be asking.

Our question is: How much time is spent, for this London Walk, traveling on the train and then bus, vs the time on site actually touring the Oxford stop and then the Cotswolds stop. If the majority of the time on this walk is devoted to train/bus travel, we'll probaby select another plan for that day.
Thank You, Andy
