The delightful town of Lechlade-on-Thames lies on the River Thames. Enjoy a boat trip, take a stroll across the pretty Halfpenny Bridge or explore the Thames Path National Trail from the town.
The Church of St Lawrence, which dominates the market square, has beautiful stained glass windows and a landmark spire. In the churchyard, the poet Shelley was inspired to write A Summer Evening Churchyard – look out for the verse inscribed by the church entrance.
Lechlade has a thriving town centre with a good selection of shops, including many antique-dealers, and regular markets. You will also find an array of wonderful places to eat and drink.
Nearby Buscot House can be visited along a towpath walk from Lechlade. Also nearby is Kelmscott Manor, William Morris's summer home for 25 years.
