Known as the Cotswolds Gateway, Kemble is the first village on the River Thames, and boasts a rich history - parts of its pretty church date back to 1250. With a population barely over 1,000, it's a classic sleepy rural village, with one pub - The Tavern Inn, right opposite the station - and a backdrop of serene Gloucestershire countryside. The local station did not open to passengers until 1882, when it replaced the nearby Tetbury Road. It was to become a prominent and busy railway junction on the Golden Valley Line from Swindon to Cheltenham - but that era ended when the branch lines to Cirencester and Tetbury were dismantled in the mid-60s. Even so, Kemble still welcomes a surprisingly high number of passengers, due in part to its proximity to Cirencester. It offers regular services towards Swindon, London Paddington, Gloucester and Cheltenham Spa, with occasional services to Cardiff and Swansea.
