From the prehistoric wonders of Stonehenge and Avebury, through Roman, Norman and Saxon times right up to the present day, Wiltshire has a wealth of timeless places waiting to be discovered. Iron Age hillforts and castle ruins. Grand historic houses and breathtaking gardens. Fascinating industrial heritage and a wide range of modern-day attractions, from motor and horse racing to the first Safari Park outside of Africa.
Since its launch in 2018 the Great West Way® has gone from strength to strength. For those who want to explore further and delve deeper, this exciting touring route between London and Bristol takes you from the world-famous to the yet-to-be-discovered, offering an extraordinary variety of English experiences along the way. Around a quarter of the Great West Way runs through Wiltshire. Along routes that brought druids to Stonehenge. Drovers to market. Pilgrims to Salisbury Cathedral.
Local food and drink feature dishes both modern and traditional, made from the finest home-grown produce. High street stores, specialist retailers and markets are joined by one of Europe's largest covered designer outlets and a popular shopping village.
Things will look a little different to normal when businesses open again after the 2021 lockdown..."We're Good To Go" is the official UK mark to signal that a business has implemented Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and has a process in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing. Many tourist attractions, shops, places to stay, activities and places to eat and drink in Wiltshire have been awarded the mark. Look out for the Good to Go logo when planning your visit.
Wiltshire is rolling green downs and ancient woodlands. Bustling market towns and picturesque villages. Contemporary luxury and picnics in the park. All this, yet only an hour and a half, or less, from London.
Wiltshire has been a special place for a very long time. So make this the year you pay us a visit. There's always time for Wiltshire.
