Located between Chipping Campden and Moreton-in-Marsh lies the charming village of Blockley. This village not only has a rich industrial history but is also renowned as the filming location for the popular BBC series, Father Brown. With the show now in its tenth season, visitors from around the world flock to Blockley to explore this picturesque Cotswold village and the Church of St Peter & St Paul. In the series, the church is transformed into St Mary Roman Catholic church, and the vicarage becomes Father Brown’s presbytery.
We are delighted to offer a private tour that includes a visit to the bell tower. This exclusive experience will allow you to explore the ringing chamber, clock room, and bell chamber. Accessible through a stunning spiral stone staircase that spans three floors, the bell chamber showcases one of the finest installations of church bells in the Cotswolds. This is a unique opportunity to witness the beauty of this famous church up close. And, of course, there will be ample opportunities for all you Father Brown fans to capture photos in front of this iconic location.
The rest of the day will be dedicated to a personalized Cotswold tour tailored to your interests. We can visit renowned villages such as Chipping Campden, Broadway, Lower and Upper Slaughter, and Bourton on the Water. Alternatively, we can venture off the beaten path and explore the hidden gem villages tucked away in the Cotswold countryside. Whether it’s admiring the world’s best thatched houses or enjoying a relaxing picnic with panoramic views of the rolling hills, we will use our local expertise to give you an authentic taste of the Cotswolds, away from the usual tourist spots.
