Visit Cricklade


Walkers are Welcome in Cricklade, a Saxon Town and home to the North Meadow famed for its Fritillaries and notably the first town on the Thames.


We are surrounded by beautiful gently rolling countryside with fauna and flora in abundance. Our Saxon Town boasts a lively and attractive high street, churches and museum as well as a warm welcome for visitors.


Cricklade is not short of a pub or two, accommodation and eateries that will warm the cockles of your heart after a short or long days walk.


Not only are we steeped in history and on the Thames Path, we're also on the doorstep of the Cotswolds, the Cotswold Water Park and a stones throw from the Blunsdon Railway and the beautiful Roman and Market town of Cirencester, formerly known as Corinium.
