Castle Combe is a village and civil parish in Wiltshire, England, about 5mi northwest of the town of Chippenham.The village has two parts: one is in the narrow valley of the By Brook, while Upper Castle Combe is on higher ground to the east, on the B4039 road which links Chippenham with Chipping Sodbury. Get a sense of the local culture at Castle Combe Village and Malmesbury Abbey. Take a break from the city and head to Chipping Sodbury Golf Club and Walks around Wotton-under-Edge. Go for a jaunt from Castle Combe to Uley to see Uely Bury Iron Age Hill Fort about 32 minutes away. There's lots more to do: tee off at Cotswold Edge Golf Club, steep yourself in history at Malmesbury Market Cross, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Andrew's Church.

Plan my trip to Castle Combe with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

London to Castle Combe is an approximately 2.5-hour car ride. Expect a daytime high around 11°C in March, and nighttime lows around 3°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 1st (Mon) so you can travel to Tewkesbury.
