Get your boots on!
It’s easy to shut ourselves away in Winter with the darker nights and lingering cold. But it’s important to stay active and there are some great places in and around Cirencester.
There is something for everyone. Whether you are looking for uphill and gruelling or leisurely and scenic. Here’s our Top 4 Winter Walks in Cirencester to explore!
1. Fairford lap
Fairford is a lovely Cotswold town located just 6 miles out of Cirencester.
This walk takes you over the River Col and forms a 2.5km route with very little incline.
2. Cirencester Park
Cirencester Park (the nearest park to our Clinic), encompasses 3000 acres of parkland. It includes a lake and a Polo ground which is the oldest Polo ground in the world!
This is a very steady walk and is located next to the town centre.
The park’s postcode is GL7 6LA, but parking is available throughout the town.
3. Cricklade to Lechlade
This walk is a bit longer at around 11 miles but is mainly flat.
The path follows the River Thames between the two villages. I would recommend starting in Cricklade which is located just off the busy A419 dual carriageway linking junction 15 of the M4 and Cirencester. There is plenty of car parking in Cricklade. After the walk, I would catch the Stagecoach Swindon bus 51 which runs from Swindon to Cricklade, again hourly (Monday – Saturday).

4. The Leckhampton loop
This is a more challenging walk with lots of inclines and around 7km of walking.
Leckhampton is located in south Cheltenham and its peak provides views over Cheltenham and the surrounding areas.
The walk starts at GL53 9NG in a car park opposite the Seven Springs pub. The route is then signposted along the Cotswold Way.
