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 beautiful countryside with a historic High Street made up of mellow, Georgian stone buildings, it is home to a wide variety of independent retailers and our colourful and noisy residents; Peacocks!

There's more to Corsham than meets the eye. Corsham Court, set in Capability Brown designed gardens, sits at one end of the High Street with a 17th Century School room and Almshouses at the other.

Corsham's unique and vibrant arts centre, The Pound, is a bustling hub of music, theatre and art. Stay a while and enjoy the many restaurants, cafes and pubs and enjoy a street market every Tuesday, where local produce can be found.

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 atmosphere and make Corsham your next place to visit.
