Devizes is an historic market town with roots in it's medieval past. The town enjoys a rich heritage of fine Georgian houses and a Victorian century castle built on the site of a Norman stronghold.

The town has the Wiltshire Heritage Museum, it is home to outstanding collections tracing the history of Wiltshire over the last 6,000 years.

During the 17th century another mighty confrontation took place at Roundway Down, just outside the town, when Royalist forces soundly defeated Cromwell's troops (2,000 men were killed on one day). Richard Burton's last film George Orwell's 1984 - the outside scenes were filmed on Roundway hill. The hill is also great for mountain biking and walking.

Devizes as a town has retained its individuality and offers enchanting cobbled alleyways with specialist retailers, cafes and traditional pubs. A weekly market is held in the Market Place every Thursday.

Wadworth's celebrated brewery remains in its original town location. Beer is delivered during the week with the famous 'Wadworth Dray Horses' The brewery has recently opened a Visitor Centre and tours of the site are also offered.

During the year events include the Devizes Festival of arts in June, Devizes Carnival in early September, the Food and Drink Festival in July and the Christmas Festival featuring a parade of hundreds of lanterns, held on the last Friday of November.

The Kennet & Avon canal passes through the town and the famous flight of 29 locks are easily accessible on foot and is a wonderful walk or again a great place to leave the town away from cars on a bike.
