Change things up with these side-trips from London: The Cotswold Brewing Company (in Bourton-on-the-Water), Cotswolds Distillery (in Stourton) and Cotswold Archery (in Moreton-in-Marsh). The adventure continues: admire the masterpieces at National Gallery, take in panoramic vistas at Tower Bridge, walk around Hyde Park, and steep yourself in history at Tower of London.
