On the region's southern fringes, Cirencester is one of the major centres of the Cotswolds, and offers much more than just sightseeing. It's certainly a town with a history – at one time the second-largest in Britain – but it hasn't become a tourist hub in the manner of many of England's heritage cities, meaning it's even more of a joy for those who do come exploring.

You can get an insight into the history of Cirencester at its Corinium Museum, this being the Roman name for the town. Mosaics and artefacts bring the story vividly to life, and children can get involved too with special activities. Those who love art, nature or both will find something to please them at Cirencester's Elemental Sculpture Park, where more than 150 pieces are dotted around the woodlands.

You wouldn't expect to find many beaches in Gloucestershire, but there is one at the Cotswold Country Park at Shorncote to the south of Cirencester, a place made for family fun with a water park and children's playground. For a bit of culture, the town's Sundial Theatre offers a varied programme of events, and those with an eye for a bargain can explore the antiques and collectibles on offer at the Corn Hall indoor market on Fridays.

The town's excellent dining scene certainly shouldn't be overlooked – you will have no trouble tracking down anything from an artisan coffee to a Michelin Star three-course meal. Among the highest-rated places in town are Tierra & Mar, a great spot for tapas, and The Falcon at Poulton, where the food is restaurant quality and the setting is a delightful country pub.
