Cirencester is an unpretentious town with narrow, winding streets and graceful town houses belonging to the affluent. The lovely market square is surrounded by wonderful 18th century and Victorian architecture, and the nearby streets showcase a harmonious medley of buildings from various eras. One of the main attractions in town is the Church of St. John the Baptist which stands elegantly on Market Square. It is one of England’s largest parish churches. The exterior is dominated with Perpendicular style towers with flying buttresses, and the highlight is the majestic three story south porch. Nearby, the Corinium Museum has one of Britain’s largest collections of Roman artifacts. You can dress up as a Roman soldier, meet an Anglo Saxon princess, and discover what Cirencester was like during its heyday as a wealthy medieval wool town.
