Just 10 miles from Bath and on the fringe of the Cotswolds, you will find the historic market town of Corsham. A hidden gem waiting to be explored.
Surrounded by glorious countryside with a heritage High Street featuring golden Georgian buildings, made from the same Bath Stone as you find in the city, Corsham is home to a wide variety of award-winning independent shops and restaurants as well as the most colourful and noisy residents: peacocks!
The High Street is also bordered by stately Corsham Court at one end, set in Capability Brown designed gardens, and by the 17th Century Schoolroom and Almshouses at the other. It’s no wonder that this beautiful town and its buildings have featured in a number of films and TV shows, including the Oscar-winning Remains of the Day and BBC One’s Poldark.
For your evening entertainment, Corsham’s unique and vibrant arts centre, The Pound, is a bustling hub of music, theatre, comedy and art. Stay a while after enjoying a performance and enjoy the town’s many restaurants, cafes and pubs serving delicious local produce.
Corsham provides an ideal base away from the city of Bath with good transport links to explore the surrounding area, including Lacock and Castle Combe. Savour the relaxed, crowd-free atmosphere and make Corsham your next place to visit.
