Cirencester, also known as the Capital of the Cotswolds, is a picturesque market town located just 10 miles from Swindon. To find us from here is an easy trip along the A419 or a scenic trip through lovely Cotswold villages like Ashton Keynes, Somerford Keynes, Kemble and Ewen.
The town is well known for its Roman roots and was the second largest town to London. In later years, the town became a very prosperous wool town which can be reflected in the town today with its ancient honey coloured stone buildings which line the narrow streets of the town.
Cirencester is the largest town in the Cotswolds and is the heart of the Cotwolds with a beautiful array of cafés, restaurants, boutiques and Independent shops. The high street is overlooked by one of the largest parish churches in England, known for its Cathedral-like appearance, the Parish Church of St. John Baptist and was built in about 1490.
If you are looking for outdoor attractions, the town boasts of a huge range of different activities. These include, Cirencester Park, St Michael’s Park, Abbey Grounds and the Roman Amphitheatre. Of these attractions are either based in the town itself or a short walk from the centre. The Market place is situated in the heart of the town and you can find a market almost every day. The Markets include a Charter Market, a Farmer’s Market, an Antiques and Collectables Market and a range of Craft Markets. The town even boasts of an open air swimming pool which was built in 1869 and offers people the chance to swim in the natural spring waters.
