Cirencester is like a patchwork quilt of architecture and culture - it's features a real mix of buildings, some dating as far back as Roman times. That's really not a surprise when you consider the fact that Cirencester was the second largest city in the UK back then.
As you'd expect from a place that has roots thousands of years ago in history, there's a lot to see and do. The Corinium Museum is a great place to start - it's full of artefacts and exhibitions looking at the Roman occupation of the area all those years ago. If you're looking for something a little more "here and now", there's always the outstanding landscape found at Cirencester park - or even Rodmarton Manor. Cerney House Gardens are also worth visiting on a sunny afternoon.
Cirencester is conveniently located - it's around 40 miles away from Bath, 15 miles from Stroud, and some 90 miles from London. All of these locations are within driving distance, making Cirencester a real favourite with commuters. The fact Cirencester is in relatively close proximity to the city of London means you're able to reap the benefits of being close to major airports such as Gatwick and Heathrow - both of which provide an aviation gateway to the world.
Cirencester is a really popular place to live - it's the "capital of the Cotswolds" for many. From the twice-weekly local market to the array of welcoming, independent shops that line the high street, you'll find everything you could possibly need in Cirencester.
