Overview
More
My name is Ken Fowler and I was born and educated in the Cotswolds. I am passionate about my heritage and love to share it with visitors and friends. I am offering personal tours of the Cotswolds in my air conditioned VW Sharan which can take you where a tour bus might struggle. I am completely flexible and will be there to act as your driver, guide and friend. I can pick you up from a local hotel, or, if you are coming from London, I can pick you up from a local railway station such as Charlbury, which is just over an hour from London, so returning to London in time for dinner is quite feasible. I will of course return you to your hotel or railway station at the end of the day.
