Over the years Cirencester Park has been a deer park, a military base, a hospital and the venue for a Glenn Miller concert.
It was originally laid out in the 1700s as a deer park by the first Earl Bathurst. It remained that way until the First World War when it became a military camp, once home to the Warwickshire Yeomanry. During this time the fences surrounding the deer park fell into disrepair and fallow deer escaped, a herd of which roam the Park to this day.
You are more than welcome to experience the wonders of Cirencester Park for yourself, on foot or on horseback and free of charge. To ensure that the park can be enjoyed by all and remains a safe and well looked after place, access is not permitted for unauthorised vehicles of any description, including bicycles and motorbikes. Please note that small children are able to use bicycles under close control.
