Belas Knap is the name of a Neolithic long barrow near Winchcombe. Locals know it as one of the best short walks in the Cotswolds, with views down over the town and Sudeley Castle. Experience it on a sunny day with clouds scudding past and Belas Knap might just be the highlight of your visit to the Cotswolds.

Berkeley, Gloucestershire

Berkeley Castle is a Norman Castle. The same family have lived here for almost 900 years. That’s the Berkeley family. The nearby village is called ‘Berkeley’ and the local pub is called the Berkeley Arms. You get the idea, this place is ancient, with vaguely feudal undertones still.

Blenheim Palace

Woodstock, Oxfordshire

Chris Dee 0 69 Article rating: No rating

OK, Blenheim may have lost a bit of Palace-cred when a Mr  Trump visited recently, but it has seen them come and it has seen them go. It remains unrivalled in terms of non-Royal palaces in Britain. 

The site was given by the nation to commemorate the military victory of John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough over assorted French and Bavarian armies in 1704.
