Clues To Go   -    Cirencester

This walk around the central streets of 'the Capital of the Cotswolds' explores not just its Roman & medieval heritage, but also the more recent legacy buildings from the 18th & 19th centuries. Many of the answers can be found on the blue plaques that are found on the walls of the historical buildings.

At the head of Cecily Hill is the entrance to Cirencester Park, 3,000 acres of landscaped gardens. Although this Clues To Go route does not actually enter the park, if you have time on your hands its an option for relaxation on a fine day.

Cirencester was called Corinium Dobunnorum when it was the 2nd largest town in Roman Britain. In Medieval days it became prosperous through the wool trade.

The market square features St. John the Baptist church (one of the largest in England).  Market days are Monday and Friday.

There is car parking available in the Market Place but also other pay-&-display parks are dotted around the centre of town. This route is wheelchair friendly with no steep hills involved.

You can find a variety of cafes etc along the route for refreshment before, during or after your circuit of the town.
