Visiting Cirencester College

Where possible we encourage visitors to come to our college by public transport, bicycle or on foot. These are both sustainable and safer for our students. However, we appreciate that that is not always possible.

From the Cirencester area you can easily walk or cycle to College. On foot, our site is 20 minutes from the town centre and you have the option of walking through beautiful Cirencester Park. We are an easy cycle from Stratton, Siddington and Preston and we are working with local councils to try to find safer routes in from the Water Park.
