When we have collected all passengers, we’ll drive you through the beautiful Warwickshire countryside to Purity Brewing Co., a 20-minute drive from Stratford-upon-Avon.

Established in 2005 by two beer-loving friends, Purity is located on a working farm and now brews a variety of beers and lagers that can be found all over the country. 

The fascinating tour of the brewery and its unique wetlands system lasts approximately 90 minutes, and includes an opportunity to sample several beers at the end of the tour. The on-site brewery shop is well worth a visit to take home some of your new discoveries! 

13.15–14.30: The Fleece Inn

Crossing the county border into Worcestershire, it’s a half-hour drive to our next stop: The Fleece Inn. Located on the edge of the Cotswolds in the pretty village of Bretforton, this historic and atmospheric pub was originally built in the 15th Century, and was gifted to The National Trust in 1977 to continue its preservation. 

While at The Fleece, you’ll enjoy a delicious lunch and a drink (a Purity beer, or a non-alcoholic drink if you prefer). You’ll also be treated to a fascinating, lively talk by landlord Nigel (or a member of his team), who will regale you with stories of the pub’s history.

14.45–16.00: Chipping Campden

Leaving The Fleece, it’s a 10–15 minute drive to our next stop – the charming Cotswolds “wool town” of Chipping Campden.

Here you’ll have just over an hour of free time. If you’re keen to continue your ale trail, you’ll be pleased to know that Chipping Campden is home to no less than 5 lovely pubs! Or, if you’ve had enough booze for now, you can explore Chipping Campden’s historic churches, fabulous independent shops, pretty Cotswolds stone buildings and thatched cottages. We’ll provide you with a map and recommendations for some of our favourite spots!

16.15–17.00: Ebrington

Go Cotswolds brewery and pub tour - 6th June 2015 2The village of Ebrington is just a few minutes away from Chipping Campden. It may be tiny, but it’s very pretty, and is home to the famous Ebrington Arms, run by landlords Claire and Jim Alexander. 

This wonderful pub has been rated the best in the UK and regularly scoops awards – not only for its warm welcome, fantastic food, beautiful beer garden and homely B&B accommodation, but also for their very own locally brewed ales! You just have to have a pint of Yubby while you’re here! 

17.10: Home time! 

From around 17.15, we’ll make our way back to return you to your point of origin. We’ll return to Moreton-in-Marsh station at approximately 17.30, and Stratford-upon-Avon station by approximately 18.15.
