Known as the capital of the Cotswolds, Cirencester is a market town steeped in history; with its Roman heritage, fantastic architecture, local attractions and individual independent shops all on the Fleece’s doorstep, you definitely won’t be short of things to see and do.
Once a very wealthy woollen centre, Cirencester has stunning Cotswold stone buildings and the largest parish church in the country with an exceptionally tall square tower.
The 3000-acre Cirencester Park designed by Alexander Pope in the 18th century includes a long avenue of old horse chestnut trees, a polo field and many good walks. Nearby is the tallest hedge in Europe and the open-air swimming pool and paddling pool fed by well-water.
Nearly 2000 years ago, Cirencester was the second-largest Roman town in England and there are many Roman remains in the area.
The Fleece is the perfect base for your next golf break in the Cotswolds. With six golf clubs within 20 miles of the inn, including Cirencester Golf Club just 2 miles away, you’ll be sure to find a club to suit you. The Cotswolds are a perfect place to play, practice and explore with friends and family.
If you want to travel a little further afield, Cirencester is the perfect base for trips to Cheltenham, Oxford, Stratford and Bath.
