The Cotswolds Store

Bathurst was named in 1815 for the 3rd Earl of Bathurst whose ancestral home is at Cirencester, the largest city of the Cotswolds district of Gloucestershire in the UK. In 2016 Bathurst NSW and Cirencester began to establish a closer relationship based upon their historical ties and economic similarities between the regions. In 2019 a formal friendship arrangement was formalised between the two cities.

Having established this formal friendship arrangement both cities shared a desire to move beyond a symbolic relationship and to create a genuine economic partnership to benefit the local businesses and economies of both areas. The first stage in this process was the establishment of ‘The Cotswolds Store’ at the Bathurst Visitor Information Centre in October 2019. The Store stocks a selection of authentic products of Cirencester and the Cotswolds, all carefully selected and personally approved by Lord Bathurst.

The establishment of this Store is the result of close collaboration between Bathurst Regional Council and Cirencester Town Council, and is hoped to lead to closer community ties and to an increasing exchange of goods and of visitors between the two cities.

Check out a selection of the available products HERE, and call into the Bathurst Visitor Information Centre to grab your piece of the Cotswolds.
