With a first recorded mention by Ptolemy in AD 150, Cirencester (then known as Corinium) is one of the earliest towns in Britain. The town’s Corinium Museum still has an extensive collection of Roman artefacts and is well worth a visit. Equally famous is Cirencester’s Royal Agricultural College, founded in 1840 and the oldest such college in the English-speaking world.

Cirencester today is a beautiful Cotswold market town with a fantastic array of speciality shops and places to eat. Surrounded by open countryside, fantastic boutique hotels and charming villages, Cirencester – the Capital of the Cotswolds – is a wonderful place to visit and explore.

Steamer Trading opened its doors in the town in 2006, in a grade II-listed stone building dating to the 17th Century. Formerly home to the General Trading Company, the building boasted no fewer than four Royal Warrants. Unfortunately, we weren’t allowed to keep them, but we did take on a beautiful and historic building. Of particular interest is the first floor – it’s moved so much over the years that even the display table legs have to the shortened to keep them sitting flat!

We’ve got the best selection of kitchenware to be found anywhere in the Cotswolds and friendly, helpful staff – we hope you’ll drop in to visit and stay for a chat, a browse or a cup of espresso.

How to find us

Our shop is at 2-4 Dyer Street, Cirencester GL7 2PF – just at the end of the Market Place. By car, you’ll find parking very close by at the North Way or The Waterloo. Cirencester’s nearest train station is Kemble, 4 miles away. Alternatively there are local bus services.

Access

Although the shop is on 2 floors, most of our range can be seen on the ground floor, which has reasonable accessibility. There are slightly narrow entrances to the back of the original part of the building, but these have been ramped for better access. The first floor is accessible only via a short, but slightly narrow original staircase. Should you require any assistance during your visit, please let our staff know and they’ll be pleased to help.

Steamer Trading is a great place to work, with great products to sell and great customers to serve!

- Buket Stallard, Cirencester Store Manager

The products I like the most would have to be:

KitchenAid Diamond Blender
This was my second KitchenAid purchase - as I love my mixer I had to go for this blender. I love cocktails and my daughter loves her smoothies so it is overall a very useful solid machine. I always recommend the KitchenAid brand to my customers with great confidence.

DeLonghi Icona Toaster and Kettle
This pair doesn't just look good, but they're very reliable. I have the pearl white set at home; the kettle is the fastest I've ever had and the toaster always toasts to perfection. (They also go very well with my Caffe Latte KitchenAid).

Nespresso Citiz and Milk
I have had my machine for almost 3 years and it works exactly the same as the day I bought it. It makes the perfect coffee at the perfect temperature. I love having friends around for morning coffees - why go to Starbucks when you have one at home?
