Cirencester, is the capital of the Cotswolds and is not only in of itself a fantastic place to discover but is a superb base to explore the Cotswolds furthers. For those interested in the history of Cirencester, the Corinium Museum showcases some exquisite mosaics and jewellery from the Roman era. The impressive gothic architecture of the Church of St John the Baptist towers, majestically, over the town centre, while to the west of the town is Cirencester House and has one of the finest landscape gardens in England, laid by the first Earl of Bathurst in 1714, which provides a fantastic location for an afternoon stroll.

In 2AD Cirencester, then known as Corinium, was the second largest town after London, with nearly 10,000 inhabitants. However, after the collapse of the Roman Empire little was documented until the early 1100s when Henry I founded the Abbey, which was finalised in 1176. While the Abbey was, and remains an endearing part of Cirencester, it wasn’t until the 15th, 16th and 17th Centuries that Cirencester rose to prominence again with its economy focusing on sheep-rearing, wool sales and cloth making, with “Cirencester cloth” being a highly sought after commodity.Back to top
