We welcome over 75,000 visitors to Burford Church each year from around the globe and we are open from 9.00 - 5.00 every day. The church is closed to visitors during services and other events, so please check below for closures before travelling. Details of the opening times of other churches in the Benefice can be found on their individual pages.
We provide a free guide to the church, as well as guides in foreign languages and our duty verger is always happy to answer questions on the building or the activities held here.
With around 850 years of history to explore, and listed in Simon Jenkins’ “England’s Thousand Best Churches” as one of only 18 five star churches, Burford Church is a must see for any visitor to the Cotswolds. We welcome tour parties from all over the world and can provide free printed tour guides in many languages. We can also, with advance notice, arrange for one of our highly knowledgeable Vergers to act as a Tour Guide to ensure your tour party makes the most of your time at the church. We would be grateful for a donation to help in covering the extensive costs of keeping open the building to members of the public. If you would like guidance on this please do ask. And finally to ensure you don’t have a wasted trip due to a wedding or funeral or other event taking place when the church may be closed, please contact us by phone or via the form below before you travel.
