Sustainable travel


Can you travel more sustainably?

Tourism is vital for the economy of the Cotswolds, and there’s plenty to see and do here to make memories lasting a lifetime. We encourage all visitors to consider their carbon footprint when visiting, so that together, we can all help to look after what makes the Cotswolds so special. Can you travel here more sustainably? Can you use shared or public transport during your stay? Can you support local food and drink producers during your visit? What other choices can you make during your trip to reduce your carbon footprint?

Sustainable travel is an important part of reducing carbon footprints.
