Fairford Hotels

The Bull Hotel
The Bull Hotel is situated along one side of Fairford's famous market square. Much of the building is dated around the 15th Century when it used to be a Monk's chanting house and during recent improvements a secret tunnel was discovered from the hotel to the 500-year-old St Mary's Church. The other part of the hotel is thought to have been a 16th century hall for a merchant or trade guild.
