This is one of my favourite villages in England and I finally made it there by public transport. I paid £37 for a return train ticket from London Paddington to Kemble. And the busses took around £9 in total. You need to make sure you check the bus schedule before your trip #uktravel #uktravels #uktravelblogger #fyp #visit
Riptide – Veronika
A travel TikTok account known as UKTravel has shared a video of the highlights of a Cotswolds village that is within easy reach from London.
The social media creator claimed that Bibury is “the most popular village in England” thanks to its incredible cottages and natural surroundings.
She said: “This is one of my favourite villages in England and I finally made it there by public transport.
“I paid £37 for a return train ticket from London Paddington to Kemble. And the busses took around £9 in total.”
However, the content creator advised viewers to “make sure you check the bus schedule before your trip”.

Most visitors who come to this quintessentially English village come for the one ‘street’, Arlington Row, which epitomises traditional Cotswold life and architecture.
Originally a wool store which was built in 1380, it was converted into weavers’ houses in the 17th century. The workers would supply cloth to Arlington Mill and it would be hung out on nearby Rack Isle.
This tiny narrow lane of cottages is now owned by The National Trust. Number nine is actually a holiday rental.
Bibury is split by the River Coln. On one side is Bibury itself while on the other you have Arlington, Rack Isle, and Awkward Hill.
Rack Isle is a little nature reserve and you reach it by a little path that leads over a small bridge and is brimming with birdlife including robins and kingfishers.

When visiting many head to the Bibury Trout Farm. It’s over 100 years old and you can not only learn about the trout they breed here but you can spend the day fishing on the lakes — and of course, buy some fresh trout to take home.
Also owned by the National Trust, the beautiful Chedworth Roman Villa sits proudly in a valley and dates back to the 4th century.
Visitors have raved over the area on TripAdvisor. One wrote: “Walked through the Bilbury Village including Arlington Row of houses. The River Coln runs through Bilbury Village and provides a natural beautiful waterscape with greenery and gardens along it.”
Another said: “Visit the quintessential chocolate box town of Bibury, take a stroll along the river, and marvel at the picturesque cottages that line the streets. You can visit the trout farm or the Swan Hotel for a bite to eat. A must-see place!”
