Charming Villages

quintessentially English

Wiltshire is full of old historic market towns and quintessential English villages. One of the best has to be the delightful village of Castle Combe, which is said to be 'The Prettiest Village in England'. Another is the picturesque village of Lacock, which boasts a wonderful array of interesting architecture and historical delights, such as it's medieval Abbey, the Fox Talbot museum and glorious Abbey grounds. It's also famous for it's use as TV and film sets, notably Harry Potter and Pride and Prejudice.

 

Prehistoric Monuments

Stonehenge & Avebury

The world famous Stonehenge is easily the most visited and well known tourist attraction in Wiltshire, however the lesser known but equally enchanting Avebury is another location that is certainly worth visiting. It's much easier to access, it's free and it also has a pub! Both offer a wonderful day out allowing you the opportunity to admire the beauty of these ancient wonders.

 

 

SALISBURY

Historic medieval City

A little further afield by about 40 minutes south of the canal is the magnificent medieval City of Salisbury. Steeped in history, Salisbury offers a fantastic day out with a range of places to visit. It's hard to miss the impressive 123m spire of the 13th-century cathedral, which holds a copy of the original Magna Carta, dating back to 1215 A.D.

Roman city of Bath

Stunning Georgian architecture

Basically, Bath has it all. Bath is well known for it's famous historic importance as a Roman settlement and it's incredible Georgian architecture but has so much more to offer. It's mix of old and new is what makes Bath so unique. You could be exploring ancient Roman Baths one minute and then dining in a fine restaurant the next. Some places worth mentioning are The Roman Baths at Bath Abbey, The Jane Austin Museum, The Royal Crescent and The Thermae Bath Spa.
