Wilton is a quintessential Wiltshire market town with a history spanning more than 2,000 years. The town gave its name not only to Wiltshire but also to the UK’s famous Wilton Carpets, which are still made here today.
Within a short walk of the Market Square and St Mary's ruin you will find the famous Italianate Church and a delightful river walk along the Wylye, running from St John's Square through the Flouse Hole conservation area to Castle Meadow.
On the edge of the town centre lies Wilton House, set in 21 acres of landscaped parkland with water and rose gardens beside the River Nadder. The magnificent Inigo Jones Staterooms include the famous Double Cube Room- the finest surviving 17th century stateroom in England, designed to display family portraits by Van Dyck.
Visit Wilton Shopping Village and enjoy a relaxed riverside environment where you’ll discover a historic courtyard, shops and a pop-up kitchen called Herbs & Wild. After shopping, relax and enjoy the rural conservation area which is surrounded by shallow chalk-bedded rivers. These provide a home to wildlife such as ducks, salmon, trout, water voles and a variety of insect life.
