Wootton Bassett has retained much of its architectural heritage. There are notable Georgian Buildings which line the broad High Street. Most of these have been sympathetically adapted to house the shops and offices that serve modern-day needs. The town is particularly well endowed with public houses. The Waggon and Horses claims to date from 1612, while the Cross Keys Inn dates from 1742, but may have been the site of an older tavern.
Wootton Bassett was a Saxon holding in 681 'Wodeton', eventually passing to Lord of the Manor Alan Bassett in 1200 who was granted the right to hold weekly markets by Henry III.
