The Gateway to the West Country and enigmatic county of Stonehenge, Avebury, White Horses and Crop Circles. The County of chalk and cheese – its upper chalk downlands contrasting with the agricultural valleys of the Pewsey Vale and the northern and western areas of the county.
Salisbury Plain and the Marlborough Downs contain some of the most important archaeological sites in North West Europe and are home to the Joint World Heritage sites of Avebury and Stonehenge.
In the valleys are many ‘picture postcard’ villages including Castle Combe and Lacock, situated in the Wiltshire Cotswolds and favourites of international film directors. Lacock Abbey featured in the recent Harry Potter film.
The beautiful medieval City of Salisbury, its wonderful Gothic Cathedral being the tallest medieval church in Europe, and the World Heritage Georgian City of Bath, just over the county’s northern border, are two of the most visited cities in the country.
If it is walking, history, archaeological, architecture or culture which interests you then come, pay us a visit. Alternatively you may wish to make one of the counties market towns-Devizes, Marlborough, Warminster or Malmesbury- a focal point for investigating the South and South West of England.
