Cirencester is ‘The Capital of the Cotswolds’ This is a place with ancient origins. The Roman fort, later town, of ‘Corinium Dobunnorum’ was an important regional capital (there’s still an atmospheric grassed over amphitheatre), mentioned by Ptolemy (as ‘Korinison’) in his Geography, written about AD 150. All this makes the award winning Corinium Museum very much more than the average town museum. Cirencester has wonderful variety of quality shops, restaurants and cafes to eat at or pick up supplies.
