The Heart of the Cotswolds
Chipping Campden Tourist Information
Chipping Campden is a small market town within the Cotswold district of Gloucestershire, England. Chipping Campden is most noted for its long and wide High Street, dating from the 14th century to the 17th century.
“Chipping” is from Old English cēping, “a market, a market-place”; the same element is found in other towns such as Chipping Norton and Chipping Sodbury. If you get up early on the morning of Scuttlebrook Wake you can generally see it in all its glory. Once a rich wool trading centre in the Middle Ages, Chipping Campden enjoyed the patronage of wealthy wool merchants at the time.
