Kingham has a main-line station with a direct service to London Paddington, via Oxford, and two popular pubs, the Plough and the Wild Rabbit. Daylesford is famed for its Organic Farm Shop, Bledington for the Kings Head Inn. The whole area is awash with good pubs, country walks and pretty towns and villages to explore, including Soho Farmhouse at Great Tew. Churchill is instantly appealing with many attractive period properties, the 19th century All Saints Church which dominates the village has a tower being a two-thirds copy of the Magdalen College chapel, Oxford. Also in the centre of the village is the well-known ‘gastro’ pub, The Chequers.
At the bottom of Hastings Hill (named after Warren Hastings (1732–1818) the first Governor-General of British India, born in Churchill on 6 December 1732) is the Churchill and Sarsden Heritage Centre housed in the chancel of the original 14th century parish church. Nearby is the Smith Memorial, a memorial to William Smith, Father of British Geology who was born in Churchill in 1769. More recently, celebrity chef Rick Stein was born in Churchill.
