Create an itinerary including Dover's Hill
Dover's Hill is a 754 feet (230 metres) hill in the Cotswolds area of central England. The hill is 1 mile (1.6 km) north-west of Chipping Campden in Gloucestershire. Dover's Hill and the surrounding land is the property of The National Trust.

On the top of the hill is a trig point, and also a toposcope illustrating many of the landmarks that are visible from it. These include the Black Mountains in South Wales and the Long Mynd in Shropshire (nearly 60 miles (97 km) away).
A monument of 1934 commemorates Robert Dover, founder of the Cotswold Olimpick Games, precursor of the

modern Olympic Games.

  • Lovely view from Dover's Hill. Site of Robt Dover's Olympick Games. We visited whilst walking the Cotswold Way. On a clear day you can see Wales.

  • A bit off the beaten track but well worth the effort to find it. The views are quite spectacular. There is a car park that is free

  • Beautiful place with amazing views, I would definitely recommend anyone visiting the Cotswold to plan a stop here. We reached here around 11am during the Easter holiday weekend. The parking was free but was almost full when we reached. You could also climb down and take the long walk to the village nearby as well. If you are looking for a nice scenic place to have a picnic or for taking some beautiful photos, I would highly suggest visiting here.
  • A terrific view, over 50 miles on a good day; after 100m level walk from a free car park. If you have the energy there are also lots of walks.
