Cirencester is a quintessential Cotswold town where visitors can delight in the daily markets as well as find local delicacies at the fortnightly farmers markets. Cirencester was involved in the local wool trade, famous across the whole of the Cotswolds, and its close association with the Romans is still very apparent today as stunning mosaics and even an amphitheatre are still prevalent in the streets and surrounding countryside.Read More
For Roman artefacts there’s no better place than the Corinium Museum where you’ll find mosaics. coins, statues and ceramics brought to life by interactive technology. During the school holidays there’s a packed calendar of kids workshops from prehistoric painting and pop-up book creation, to making Roman armour and mosaics.
Unusually for a stately home, Cirencester Park sits within the town of Cirencester, screened from it by the tallest yew hedge in the world. Visitors are free to wander around the 15,000 acres of gardens, stop for a picnic and take away coffee from the ‘Beano’ converted horse trailer, and if you’re lucky watch a game of Polo or cricket at each of the Park’s clubs.
In the centre of town the New Brewery Arts is home to a gallery with a regularly changing exhibition schedule, presenting work by some of the UK’s leading makers, designers and artists. The shop sells beautifully hand-crafted homeware and individually designed jewellery and textiles, some of which are created by their very own craftspeople. The maker’s studios are open to the public and host several workshops and classes where visitors can learn a new skill, whilst rediscovering their own creativity.
A short, ten minute drive out of town and you can enjoy a family day at the Cotswold Country Park and Beach.
