Rich in treasures of the past, Burford’s architecture is a testament to the days of the 18th century and earlier, also to the men, wool merchants, gunsmiths, bell founders and saddlers who all contributed to the town’s prosperity.

The Tolsey, now a museum, stands in the centre of the town and dates from around 1450. Tolls due to the Lord of the Manor and those incurred by strangers at the fairs, were paid here. Burford is endowed with a splendid church, its tower dating from Norman times. Nearby are the almshouses commissioned by Henry Neville, Earl of Warwick for the comfort of eight aged women of the parish and the grammer school as founded by Simon Wisdom in 1571.

Often known as the gateway to the Cotswolds, Burford lies 10 miles west of Oxford on the A40 and is within 2 hours drive from London. The town today offers a vibrant mix of independent shops, teashops, hotels and restaurants which all stretch along the picturesque High Street and is a popular destination for visitors.

Burford is the base for seven of our members dealing in a wide range of art and antiques.
