Things To Do in Wiltshire

History in Wiltshire is not just ancient. Here you can wander through time. The Romans, Normans and Saxons have all left their mark…

On the ‘must see’ list alongside the medieval city of Salisbury are Stonehenge and Avebury World Heritage Site, Longleat Safari & Adventure Park and the National Trust’s gardens at Stourhead.

You can explore our industrial heritage at Wadworth Brewery, Crofton Beam Engines and Wilton Windmill, STEAM Museum or Swindon & Cricklade Railway; discover bison, butterflied and farmyard favourites; or uncover Wiltshire’s unparalleled archaeology in our fascinating museums.

There are eight White Horse chalk figures on display on our hillsides, old settlements like Old Sarum, a National Trust village at Lacock and some stunning historic houses and gardens including Bowood and Wilton House.

Enjoy things to do in the Wiltshire countryside

The Wiltshire countryside alters with the seasons and that’s what makes you feel so connected to just nature but to time itself.

Make the most of our breath-taking countryside; try a day’s trout fishing, a canal boat trip or a round of golf; a hot air balloon ride, a treasure trail or a tandem skydive; an off road driving experience or a real-life adventure escape game.

Enjoy stunning views of the landscape from horseback; hire a bike and re-discover the thrill of cycling around uncrowded country lanes; or explore our ample walking trails on your own Wiltshire adventure.
