Welcome to Cirencester
Cirencester, the capital of the Cotswolds, considered by many to be one of the most beautiful areas in England, with its unique stone-built heritage, gently rolling hills and broad valleys, is an ideal destination.
Cirencester (often referred to as the Capital of the Cotswolds) was the second largest town in Britain during Roman times. In later years it was a very prosperous medieval wool town.
There are many places to visit and sites to enjoy, including the Abbey Grounds, St. Michael's Park, Cirencester Park, the Roman Amphitheatre, New Brewery Arts and the Corinium Museum. Cirencester's market place is dominated by the Parish Church of St. John Baptist. From its founding in the early 12th century the church was extended and embellished over more than three centuries, culminating in a complete rebuilding of the nave in the 16th century.
