The village of Bourton-on-the-Water is known for its picturesque High Street, flanked by long wide greens and the River Windrush that runs through them. The river is crossed by several low, arched  stone bridges. These arched bridges have led to Bourton-on-the-Water  being called the "Venice of the Cotswolds". Bourton-on-the-Water often  has more visitors than residents during peak times of the tourist season
