Wiltshire is an ancient land, steeped in myth and legend, and there are plenty of things to do, thanks to an outstanding variety of attractions to visit. Discover iconic sites, unearth the secrets of the past at one of the many museums, explore stately homes and gardens and get close to members of the animal kingdom.

LACOCK ABBEY & VILLAGE

A visit to the National Trust village of Lacock is like a step back in time.


Lacock has been used as a location in a number of films and television programmes such as Pride and Prejudice, Lark Rise to Candleford and The Other Boleyn Girl. Lacock Abbey was also one of the locations for the first Harry Potter film. Spend a morning wandering round the village soaking up the atmosphere. Well worth a visit.

AVEBURY STONE CIRCLE

At the centre of a prehistoric complex in the Marlborough Downs stands Avebury, the largest stone circle in Europe.

This circle features one of the most impressive henges in Britain, as well as the remains of a stone avenue. Originally erected about 4,500 years ago, many of the stones were re-erected in the 1930s by Alexander Keiller.

CAEN HILL LOCKS

The flight of the 29 locks at Caen Hill were engineer John Rennie’s solution to climbing the very steep hill in Devizes.

They were the last part of the 87-mile route of the Kennet and Avon Canal to be completed. Due to the steepness of the terrain, 16 of the locks utilise unusually large side ponds to store the water needed to operate.
