At one time Cirencester, then known as Corinium was the capital

of the Romans' first province in Britain, second in size only

to London. Three Roman Roads used back then are still used

today: Akeman Street, Fosse Way and Ermine Street. At the

Corinium Museum there is an extensive collection of

Roman relics, and at Quern Hill, the remnants of a Roman

amphitheater can be found. Other attractions include the 14th-

century St. John the Baptist Church which is one of the largest in

England. Cirencester has always been a market city

and each year horse trials, hot-air balloon rides, and polo

competitions are held during the summer months.
