Cirencester Shopping

A unique mix of independently owned shops along with national chains

From clothing stores to jewellers and from homeware to gift shops in Cirencester, this lovely Cotswolds town has a mix of shops that should cater for most needs.

Well-known names such as Crew Clothing, Joules, Waterstones, White Stuff and Marks & Spencer combine with local boutiques, specialist food shops and independent retailers to offer a unique shopping experience.

The main shopping area centres around the Market Place, Dyer Street, Cricklade Street and Castle Street, but be sure to explore the West Market Place and Black Jack Street areas too. There is also a small covered shopping area called Bishops Walk and The Woolmarket off Dyer Street has lots of little shops to explore.

The Black Jack Street area has become a 'must visit' area with loads of 'nooks and crannies' to explore.

And the re-development of the back of the Post Office area has brought further outlets to this area such as Joli Beau and Pashon.

Encore Clothing is also located in the area between Black Jack Street and Castle Street. Lord, the 'upscale full-service Barber Shop' for boys and men, has become a mainstay of this retail area.
