Cotswolds Finest Attractions A-Z

Corinium Museum

Cirencester, Gloucestershire

Chris Dee 0 247 Article rating: No rating

A smaller museum with an impressive collection of ancient objects. Corinium (Cirencester) was one of the most important cities in Roman Britain - probably second only to London, in fact.

These days Cirencester is still the largest settlement within the Cotswolds area, as strictly defined. It’s a town of a little under 20,000 people, and a good option when it’s a little rainy in the Cotswold hills, with one-off shops, restaurants, a well-stocked antiques centre and a good Oxfam bookshop.

Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens

Nr Burford, Oxfordshire

Cotswold Wildlife Park, which is definitely not to be confused with the Cotswold Farm Park, is near Burford in Oxfordshire. At this one you’ll see rhinos, monkeys and giraffes rather than sheep, pigs and goats. We're told that a small but steady stream of visitors do turn up at each venue having confused the two attractions. 

Cotswolds Distillery

Stourton, Shipston-on-Stour, Warwickshire

A relative newcomer to the Cotswolds scene, Cotswolds Distillery has made a big impact, initially with the success of its Cotswolds Dry Gin. The long-term game plan, however, was all about whisky production. New Yorker Dan Szor was the founder, noting the Cotswolds clean water, barley and deciding that a great whisky could be made here.
