Stow on the Wold is a centuries old hilltop market town that stands high on the Fosseway. The beautiful large market square is surrounded by houses, shops and inns all glowing in the warm natural stone. In the centre of the town stands the medieval Market Cross, scene of the surrender by the Royalists following their defeat by the Parliamentarians at the Battle of Stow in 1646.

Stow on the Wold Visitor Information Centre (VIC) can be found in St Edward’s Hall in the Square where it shares the ground floor with Stow Library. You can call the VIC on 01451 870998 or email
