1. Visit Cirencester - the Cotswolds largest town
What is it? Cirencester is the largest town in the Cotswolds.
Why go? Known to have been an important Roman settlement (it is home to one of the largest amphitheatres in Britain), Cirencester is generally considered the Capital of the Cotswolds. Plan a lavish retreat staying at beautiful Barnsley House. With a spa, private cinema and menu sourced from the hotel garden, there’s no real need to leave – still, you might be tempted to venture out to the local Michelin-star restaurant Made by Bob. At the very least, check out their deli, which sells Made by Bob store cupboard products, as well as top-quality baked bread, pastries, cakes, cheese and charcuterie.
