Surrounding Area/Links

A short stroll from Riverside House and you are in the centre of the historic market town of Cirencester, with its ancient church and cobbled side streets. Discover the Corinium Museum, telling the history of our Roman town, the New Brewery Arts, boasting arts and crafts galore, Cirencester Park and the Roman Amphitheatre. The Parish Church of St. John the Baptist dominates the market place due to its 162 foot tall tower and is the largest in Gloucestershire. It is one of the great wool churches and worth a visit.
