The Japanese garden, Wilton House

If you haven’t been to the small town of Wilton then you are missing out. Here are ten photos that showcase just some of the treasures you can discover on a visit here… we hope you enjoy them!

Wilton House

The stunning exterior of Wilton House dates from Tudor times. You can see why the house has been used as a film location (including Pride & Prejudice and The Young Victoria). The interior is pretty spectacular too with paintings from masters including van Dyck and Brueghel.

Make time to explore the gardens, with the Japanese bridges, the arboretum, water features and the Palladian bridge.

The Italianate Church

The beautiful church of St Mary and St Nicholas was designed by TH Wyatt after being commissioned by the Pembroke estate. It was built between 1841 and 1844. The architecture of the church is particularly striking and lends itself to many a photo!

Grovely Woods

On the outskirts of Wilton, these woods are a haven for flora and fauna. There are several footpaths crossing through the woods. Look out for the celandines and primroses from early spring and the carpets of bluebells during April-May. The autumn colours are always a pleasure to see too!

St Mary’s Old Church

In the heart of Wilton, there are the remains of St Mary’s Church. The church was partially demolished on the completion of the Italianate church and what remains today is the chancel, one bay of the nave and the ruins of the arcades and tower arch. It is now under the care of the Churches Conservation Trust and is open daily.

Kingsbury Square

Just a short distance from the Market Square, Kingsbury Square is made up of some interesting houses and small green areas. It is also full of colour in spring as the daffodils emerge.
