On the outskirts of the town are two supermarkets (Waitrose and Tesco) as well as a Hospital.

A gate to the 2500 acre Cirencester Park, belonging to the Bathurst family and open during the day, is also a short walk off Cecily Hill. Many concerts are given in the Church and there are talented local choirs and amateur dramatic groups. Within about half an hour’s drive are the towns of Cheltenham, Gloucester and Swindon.
