Naturecan, a health and wellbeing brand, ranked locations on a number of factors including the number of independent shops, the range of cultural events and how ‘Instagrammable’ they were.

Burford is located in West Oxfordshire, close to the Gloucestershire boundary, and is approximately 20 miles west of Oxford.
