Almost half of Wiltshire’s breathtaking landscape falls within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. So make the most of the great outdoors with a canoe trip or a horseback safari, a day’s fishing or a round of golf. Try an off-road driving experience, a tandem skydive or a hot air balloon flight. Team up with a local guide to hear tales of myth and legend. Turn your hand to go-karting, live escape games and laser combat. Relax in a luxurious spa, or hone your culinary skills on a cookery course.
No visit to Wiltshire would be complete without experiencing the magic of Stonehenge and Avebury. Equally impressive is the medieval masterpiece of Salisbury Cathedral, home to the finest surviving 1215 Magna Carta manuscript. You’ll also find stately homes and gardens. Museums of national importance and outstanding industrial heritage. Animal attractions and the UK’s first safari park.
These days, it seems, you’re always on the go. Someone’s always on your case. Always wants your time. Wiltshire is the perfect antidote to busy lives and overcrowded cities. Here you can breathe more easily. Feel unhurried. Relax and unwind. So make time for yourself in 2018 and let Wiltshire put back what the rest of the week takes out. Request the 2018 Visitor Guide here.
Instead of living life in the fast lane, why not take things at a gentler pace. Step off the world for a while. On a narrowboat trip along Wiltshire’s Kennet & Avon Canal, for example, you’ll find just three speeds: slow, very slow and stop. No need for speed cameras (although the more conventional kind could come in handy).
