Wiltshire travel guide

Ruins · Gardens · Churches
Wiltshire is a large and mostly rural county in the west of England. The county contains large areas of rolling chalk downs and grazing farmland, including Salisbury Plain, which is the location of the world-famous Stonehenge, Avebury stone circles, and several other ancient landmarks. These important Neolithic monuments attract crowds of curious travelers throughout the year, while the region’s quaint villages remain oases of tranquility and great vacation ideas just a little off the beaten track. In a land of historic attractions thousands of years old, the impressive 800-year-old Salisbury Cathedral, situated in the region’s only city, may seem a relatively modern religious monument. While this region is indisputably soaked in history and heritage, it also boasts numerous modern restaurants, cafes, pubs, and bars, known for championing local producers.
