CIRENCESTER (often referred to as the Capital of the Cotswolds) was the second largest town in Britain during Roman times. Cirencester's market square is dominated by the cathedral-like Parish Church of St. John Baptist (one of the largest in England). The large south porch with its impressive fan vaulting was built about 1490.
Cirencester has a mix of shops that should cater for most people's needs.The main shopping area centres around the Market Place, Dyer Street, Cricklade Street and Castle Street. There is also a small covered shopping area called Bishops Walk and The Woolmarket off Dyer Street has lots of little shops to explore. The Black Jack Street area has become a 'must visit' area with loads of 'nooks and crannies' to explore.
