“A wonderful church spoilt by the external stone treatment”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

What has been done to the external stonework of the 'old' Town Hall part of this church facing the market place? A wonderful church well worth a visit with so much history, but now glowing yellow externally

“Fantastic Church”
Reviewed 25 July 2014 via mobile

One of the best mediaeval buildings I've been to in a while. The highly cleaned porch does somewhat spoil the old feeling of the building, however the rest of the building does not disappoint. There are some excellent brasses and original wall paintings within, as well as surviving stained glass.

I should also mention the staff, who are incredibly passionate and enthusiastic, and will greet you on entry, as well as answer and questions you have about the building.

A real sense of history.

“Focal point of the city”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

The Parish church is the focal point of the market place/town center. Cirencester has an amazing history if one cares to learn about it. The only problem our family had during our visit was that everything opened late and closed very early - this was Mid July and we used Cirencester as our home-base to go explore The Costswolds and Bath. So,when we came back from visiting other areas and would have liked to shop in the city a bit , all the stores were closed - On a scale of 0 to 10 of villages within the Cotswolds, I would give cirencester and the Parish church a 4. The church doesn't seem to have been taken care of as well as some of the others throughout the Cotswolds. Still, its a wonderful little village, with character and charm, peace and quiet and history that should not be forgotten.
