Wiltshire - 6,000 years of history waiting to be discovered

Escape to Wiltshire and discover a land shrouded in mystery, steeped in legend, where history comes alive through its many iconic attractions; a land where breathtaking sights combine with picture perfect villages nestling peacefully amid rolling, unspoiled countryside and the past merges perfectly with the present.

Top of the ‘must see' list are the World Heritage Sites of Avebury and Stonehenge, visitor attractions such as Longleat and Stourhead, and the medieval cathedral city of Salisbury.

And there are plenty more, equally show-stopping historic sights to be discovered, including Iron Age hill forts and castle ruins, stately homes and landscape gardens, industrial heritage and award-winning museums. Not to mention a wide range of modern-day attractions, from motor and horse racing to designer retail outlets.

Walkers and cyclists are well served with over 8,200 paths to explore, and Wiltshire's enormous appeal doesn't end there. Add great shops, good food and quality year-round entertainment - including Swindon's vibrant nightlife - and the result is an area which offers endless opportunities to relax and unwind: the perfect fusion of ancient and modern.
