Driving Time:

Approximately 17 minutes

Cirencester, known as the Capital of the Cotswolds, is a lovely market town with a fascinating history where you will receive a warm welcome. In Roman times, Cirencester, known as ‘Corinium Dobunnorum’, was the second largest town only to London. 

 

It became a very prosperous wool town in the medieval period, which is the basis for the charming town with ancient honey coloured stone buildings in picturesque narrow streets that you can visit today. Set in the heart of the Cotswolds, Cirencester is a great town to visit and makes a delightful base for visitors wishing to explore the area.
