The English County of Wiltshire

The county of Wiltshire is known as "The gateway to the West Country". Wiltshire is a beautiful county of great diversity covering an area of almost 3,500 sq km. It unites the districts of Kennet , West Wiltshire , North Wiltshire, Salisbury and South Wiltshire with the Borough of Swindon.

With a population of nearly 430,000 and with much of the county designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty the region is a perfect destination for a relaxing break at any time of the year. Admire the beauty of the gardens; walk the White Horse Trail to see the eight white horses carved into the hillsides; or take a leisurely wander through our market towns and pick up the real flavour of country life.

Much of the county still remains largely undiscovered, a rural idyll less than two hours from London.

Wiltshire has some delightful old market towns including Malmesbury, Marlborough, Devizes and Bradford on Avon.There are hidden villages that are waiting to be discovered, perhaps an old country pub or two or the unexpected distant sighting of a White Horse carved into a chalk hillside.

Explore the beautiful city of Salisbury with its magnificent cathedral with soaring spire or linger in some of the delightful shops and cafes. Must visits, of course, are to the two world heritage sites of Stonehenge and Avebury where there is both mystery and magic.

Wiltshire is home to a world-class collection of gardens. The county's sweeping landscapes are studded with horticultural gems.
