Decided to visit Bibury village on our stay in nearby Stratford upon Avon. Must admit, the main draw was the promise of the iconic view of Arlington Row, supposedly England's prettiest row of cottages, which I do tend to agree with. Village sits on the banks of the River Coln, a crystal clear trout beck, with burbling waters running over a chalky river bed and plenty of trout of various sizes obligingly sitting there facing upstream and maintaining their position with gentle flicks of their tails. We managed to park nearby but I can imagine that parking could be a nightmare if really busy, so maybe drive though the village and park and walk in (nice walk, although busy road). Alternatively, pick early morning or late afternoon, out of main tourist times...The cottages themselves are beautifully preserved and much photographed but please remember that people live in these places, so no doubt appreciate being left to enjoy their homes without too much intrusion. There's a handy WC opposite the river and also a post office, which sells nice local ice creams. Take a wander up to the church (outskirts of the village) - it's worth a visit as well. There's a trout farm (we didn't visit that but you can if you wish to). Lovely place for a quick visit all in.

Well what can I say that hundreds of other people have not already said. We just did a quick stop off as this terrace row of houses is simply suspended in time and looks magnificent. We loved walking up the pathway and viewing the superb picturesque setting which is Arlington Row. Like so many others we parked for free along the edge of the main road through the village and really did enjoy our walk and view. A real must place to come and have a look at.

Great quick stop to see Arlington Row. I read to avoid the parking "lot" across from the Trout Farm and thankfully was able to find easy street parking next to the water. Easy walk to Arlington Row. Went late afternoon/early evening on a Tuesday and it was not very busy.

How on earth do people live in those houses with coachloads of tourists stood outside their windows taking photos?! Very picturesque with a stream and ducklings. We didn't go into the Trout Farm, £7.50 each, and I'm not sure that there was £15 worth of entertainment in there.

We also visited the church, lovely rose bushes in the cemetary, would look good on a wedding photo.

Lovely Cotswold stone houses. Area quite busy and difficult to park but would have been far worse, had the usual large tour groups been present.... one benefit of COVID travel restrictions in force at the time and only one coach party present.

Arlington Row is so pretty and postcard perfect. However, the crowds are horrible and it feels intrusive to spend too much time directly in front of the cottages. Do take the time to explore the entire village, we had the other streets and paths to ourselves.

Very beautiful old cottages originally built in 1380 as a wool store but converted in the 17th century into houses for the weavers working near by Arlington Mill. You cannot see inside just walk around pass them. These are actually immortalised in the UK passport as an image of England.
Highly recommend this site.

Bibury is a village in Gloucestershire, England, on the River Coln, a Thames tributary that rises in the Cotswold District. Arlington Row is a nationally notable architectural conservation area depicted on the inside cover of all British passports. It is a major destination for tourists visiting the traditional rural villages, tea houses and many historic buildings of the Cotswold District.

Undoubtedly this is one of the most beautiful villages in England, it looks very picturesque. Apparently Arlington Row is so iconic it used to be featured on the old British passport, that’s what our guide told us.
The only thing is, it’s very difficult to take pics. As overseas holidays are cancelled, there were so many people around, a lot more than usual so you have to wait a while before it clears up.

We visited in May but the walk up to the row of houses was not accessible due to covid19 so we came back in July to see if it was opened and it was. What a beautiful village we walked up to the houses. Lots of tourists there, a very busy village and we are very glad we went back. Worth a visit, owned by the National Trust and free to visit.
