Castles and Hill Forts 1 Day Itinerary

Castles and Hill Forts 1 Day Itinerary

Morning - Start the day at the 11th century remains of Ludgershall Castle. From here it is a short drive, via the garrison town of Tidworth, to the Iron Age hill fort of Old Sarum, on the northern edge of Salisbury, where you can see the ruins of a castle, cathedral and royal palace.

Lunch - Wilton or Tisbury.

Afternoon - First stop this afternoon is at the unusual 14th century hexagonal ruins of Old Wardour Castle. An audio tour brings its long history and dramatic involvement in the Civil War to life. Then it's on to the hidden treasures of another English Heritage property, 14th century Farleigh Hungerford Castle near Bradford on Avon. If you have time en route, the Three Daggers pub, brewery and farm shop makes a refreshing stopping off point.
