Wiltshire has been a special place for a very long time. Stonehenge and Avebury have a magnetism that has drawn people to them for thousands of years. But history in Wiltshire is not only ancient. Romans, Normans, Saxons – and later generations too – all made their mark, leaving a wealth of show-stopping sights to be discovered.

Not to mention a wide range of modern-day attractions, from motor and horse racing to the UK’s first-ever drive-through safari park.

Wiltshire is also rolling green downs and ancient woodlands. Bustling market towns and picturesque villages. Timeless monuments and contemporary luxury. Local ales and picnics in the park.

It’s time for Wiltshire

Time for Wiltshire Visitor Guide

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).
