Family Friendly Experiences in Wiltshire
Family Wiltshire – the perfect place for a family holiday in the UK
If you are looking for some inspiration for a family break then a holiday in Wiltshire could be your perfect option…
With a huge range of things to do and fun activities that will keep the whole family entertained no matter what the weather and a wide choice of accommodation for families, Wiltshire makes an ideal family break.
Near to Swindon is Roves Farm, on the outskirts of Chippenham there's Tractor Ted’s Little Farm at Bowood and just off the A303 you can find Cholderton Charlie’s farm. Spot native wildlife at Cotswold Water Park or Langford Lakes Nature Reserve.
We all know what the British weather can be like – so if it does begin to rain then don’t let that put you off visiting as there’s lots to do indoors. Head to Salisbury Museum or Wiltshire Museum and see their interactive exhibitions and be sure to check out their family friendly events.
Climb into cockpits and take the controls on a visit to Boscombe Down Aviation Collection on the outskirts of Salisbury or see if you can escape from Salisbury Escape Room with the Magna Carta challenge. Train lovers will enjoy a visit to STEAM – Museum of the Great Western Railway in Swindon where you can even have a go at becoming an engine driver!
Enjoy the fresh air
Get lost in Braydon Maize Maze during the summer months, explore the beautiful gardens of Stourhead with its hidden grottos and temples (they regularly hold family friendly events too) and enjoy the parks and landscape of Lydiard Park on the outskirts of Swindon.
Get out and about in our Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty whether on a nature walk, cycling or a spot of horse riding.
