Explore the Cotswolds and Beyond with Pam Ayres.

Fans of the Cotswolds have been treated to a second series of the Channel 5 show The Cotswolds with Pam Ayres – only this time viewers will be taken a little further afield, hence its new title The Cotswolds and Beyond with Pam Ayres.
In this six-part series poet Pam Ayres embarks on yet another fascinating journey in and around the Cotswolds. “I’m so pleased the first series was so well-received,” says Pam. “This time we’ve gone over the borders, visiting beautiful places like Wells Cathedral and the caves in Cheddar. It’s such a novelty as I lead a fairly solitary existence normally. But it’s nice to be nosey!”


Viewers will be taken from Highclere House, one of Britain’s most recognisable stately homes thanks to the hit show Downton Abbey, to mystical Stonehenge, where Pam is given privileged access to the ancient stone circle. With spectacular aerial footage and close-up shots, this is the Cotswolds as you’ve never seen them before.

Pam will be sharing insights and stories, as well as using her local knowledge to bring to life all of the places she visits. She’ll be chatting to some of the famous locals, including Olympic rowing legend Sir Steve Redgrave and (the then) Prince Charles at his Highgrove home. In episode one she popped in on singer and actress Toyah Willcox, who lives in the village of Pershore in Worcestershire.

The show is broadcast by Channel 5 on Friday evenings at 8pm. If you missed the first episodes, or just want to go back and revisit some of the beautiful areas featured, the entire series will be available on My5.
