The Central Southern England region
The county of Wiltshire is known as "The gateway to the West Country". Wiltshire is a beautiful county of great diversity and as much of it is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty the region is a perfect destination for a relaxing break at any time of the year. Admire the beauty of the gardens; walk the White Horse Trail to see the eight white horses carved into the hillsides; or take a leisurely wander through the market towns and pick up the real flavour of country life.
Must visits, of course, are to the two world heritage sites of Stonehenge and Avebury where there is both mystery and magic.
Wiltshire is home to a world-class collection of gardens. The county's sweeping landscapes are studded with horticultural gems.
Top recommended things to do:
With much mystery still surrounding Stonehenge, a visit to Wiltshire would be incomplete without stopping by at this iconic site. Whilst here make time to explore the wider landscape with the Cursus, the Avenue, Durrington Walls and Woodhenge.
Wiltshire's other stone circle, Avebury forms part of the World Heritage Site with Stonehenge. Walk amongst the stone circle, see the largest man-made mound in Europe – Silbury Hill and explore the West Kennett Long Barrow all within the wider Avebury landscape.
3. Crop circles
Wiltshire is renowned for its crop circles which generally appear from April to September across the county. There is still a lot of mystery as to how they are formed and the reasons behind their exact locations.
4. White Horses and chalk carvings
There are currently 8 white horses across the county which remain on view, the oldest dating back to 1778 and the most recent in 1999. Other chalk carvings include: the Fovant Badges, the Bulford Kiwi and the ANZAC carving at Codford.
5. The Kennet & Avon canal
Stretching for 87 miles and across the whole county, the Kennet & Avon canal was built to develop trade links with Bristol and London. Today, the canal is no longer used for industry but is perfect for a relaxing boat ride, a walk along the tow path or a refreshing pint in one of the beer gardens alongside the water. Be sure to check out the Caen Hill Locks too with its 29 consecutive locks helping canal boats rise 237 feet near Devizes.
6. Salisbury Cathedral and Magna Carta
The spectacular Early English Gothic Cathedral has Britain's tallest spire standing at 123 metres (404ft) and one of the finest original copies of the Magna Carta. Whilst here see Europe's oldest working clock and those with a head for heights should definitely do the 'Tower Tour' where you climb 332 steps to the base of the spire.
7. Lacock and Castle Combe
Step back in time in the beautiful village of Lacock with its medieval Abbey and quintessentially English houses and streets. Much of the village has been used in filming with the likes of Cranford, Pride and Prejudice and even Harry Potter being filmed here. Castle Combe has been made famous by recent film productions of War Horse, The Wolf Man and Stardust and is set in the Wiltshire Cotswolds.
8. Walking Paths
For keen ramblers or those looking for a gentle stroll – Wiltshire has an abundance of paths (over 8,200 in fact!) suitable for all abilities. Visit our walking section where you can download route maps to help you plan your day out.
9. Charming market towns and villages
Wiltshire's market towns and villages date back to their historic roots yet are still thriving to this day. Most markets are weekly and offer an array of local produce, clothing, furniture and household goods as well as grocery supplies. There is a Wiltshire Farmers' Market network which visits various towns throughout the months offering goods direct from the supplier.
10. Year round entertainment
Have a flutter on the horses at Salisbury Racecourse, take part in the spectacular festivals in both Devizes and Salisbury, visit one of our theatres or arts venues or one of the many special exhibitions staged in our local museums. Wiltshire is rich in the arts and events take place year round. Visit our What's On section for a calendar of events taking place when you visit.
Marlborough is situated in the picturesque rural north-east of Wiltshire. Much of its great natural beauty is environmentally protected and it offers the discerning visitor a unique blend of modern attractions and facilities. Site of a twice-weekly market, the High Street is one of the widest in the UK and lined on both sides with characterful old buildings housing an array of high quality shops.
The town displays the confidence of wealth from times past, yet today remains vibrant and progressive with its own chic café culture.
The Merchant's House - one of the finest 17th century middle-class homes open to visitors in England - is also to be found here and contains a wealth of period features, paintings and artifacts.
The cosmopolitan flavour of the town is greatly enhanced by the annual International Jazz Festival which takes place in July and the Food Festival in October.
