Chipping Campden is situated at the northern end of the Cotswold Hills and is one of the jewels of the Cotswolds. It is not surprising therefore that it is one of the most popular and beautiful tourist destinations in the UK. One of the main attractions is the High Street. Filled with beautiful honey-coloured stone buildings (14th-17th centuries), it is often described as the most perfect High Street in England. It features a wide range of interesting, sometimes unique, small shops. You'll also find a large variety of good restaurants, hotels and pubs - all offering both traditional and international cuisine. Anyone searching for the heritage of the Middle Ages will find it in Chipping Campden. For in the space of a hundred metres or so, you'll find excellent examples of Elizabethan, Georgian, Jacobean, Regency and Victorian architectures. The famous Jacobean Market Hall dates from 1627 whilst St James's Church dates from the 15th century.
The Cotswolds' own "Olympicks" are held at Dover's Hill, Chipping Campden every summer. The event is named after Robert Dover, who established the festival of games in the 17th century on the hill that overlooks Chipping Campden. The first Cotswold Olympicks were held with permission from King James I in 1612, they were revived in 1951 and since 1963, they have been held every year. The original games featured shinkicking and sword play, but modern day games feature rural sports, tug-of-war and band displays.
