Bourton on the Water can be a magical place to be at Christmas time, with the famous Christmas Tree in the river being lit on Friday 1st December 2017. This year there is no “Official” switch on of the lights, but many of the shops and eateries will stay open late to launch our festive season and help visitors get into the Christmas spirit. The village offers a large selection of gift shops for Christmas shoppers and the eateries menus offer festive fayre and an array of winter warmers.
