Discover Wiltshire’s Historical Landmarks…

A visit to Stonehenge is like no other this season. For many people, a glimpse from the car window is as close as they’ve come to the famous stones standing majestically on Salisbury Plain. For others, their last experience of Stonehenge was as a child, perhaps on a family day out or a school trip. Although the stones themselves are timeless, a visit to Stonehenge offers more than you might imagine. So, if you haven’t been recently, why not come and find out for yourself this Autumn?

Located at the Stonehenge Visitor Centre is a Neolithic village built by a talented team of volunteers. Based on excavated footprints of the houses occupied at the time Stonehenge was constructed, they contain replicas of the everyday items which would have been used 4,500 years ago. Scientific examination of animal bones, food residues on ancient pots and even analysis of the soil around the site will tell you what people were growing, cooking, and eating. There is also evidence to show that Winter Solstice was a time for feasting! Come in, take a look around and talk to the volunteers who can share with you what life was like here during the Neolithic period. And if all this talk of food makes you hungry, you can refuel in the café with a fresh soup, delicious pasty, or one of the famous rock cakes!

Further explore Wiltshire’s iconic history as you embark on an unforgettable, 5-star rated, off-road experience for your family and friends this Autumn and Winter! Hop in one of Salisbury Plain Safaris Land Rover Defenders and explore 350 sq. Km of wild open spaces contained within the UK’s largest Armed Forces training area.

Discover history from all the way back in the Stone Age before exploring the hidden clues which show how life has evolved and shaped the landscape to present day.

Discover Wiltshire’s Iconic Towns

At Corsham, explore a quintessentially English market town with independent shops and winding streets as you encounter local peacocks who wander between historic stone buildings and pretty green open spaces. Just 20 minutes from Bath, Corsham sits on the edge of the Cotswolds. Its history is linked to wool and stone: the wool from the Flemish weavers who based themselves in the town; the stone from the famous Bath Stone, quarried locally and used in many of the town’s buildings. A star among them is Corsham Court, a Saxon royal manor house and home to a collection of celebrated paintings, housed in a picture gallery designed by Capability Brown, who also landscaped the gardens. The glorious parkland that surrounds the Court is perfect for an early-morning autumn walk…
