Cirencester Overview

Cirencester is in the Cotswolds, an area well known for its natural beauty. There is a church that is almost totally obscured by its own enormous stone gateway, and a recently refurbished museum full of artefacts from Roman times. Cirencester is one of the few towns in England where the interesting shops are shut on Sundays. There is also an enormous yew hedge and the remains of a Roman Villa. The craft market is on in the corn exchange on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month.

The town is near to the Cotswold water park, where Keynes Country Park boasts of the only fresh-water blue-flag beach in England.
