Be prepared for rain but don’t let it stop you! Devizes has so many festivals running throughout the year for all the community of all ages. My favourites being The Devizes Street Festival. Acts come from all over the world to perform here. There are tight rope walkers, comedians, juggling and many other street artists. People flood from all over Britain to visit. It’s a 2-day event. The 1st day being held on the green and the 2nd being held in and around the market place. Great for all ages.
There is also an amazing food festival held in the market place with some great local bands. A nice day to relax with family or friends.
The Lantern Parade is before Christmas. This is held in the Market square. Lots of people turn up with their homemade lanterns along with the street entertainers. They all walk along to the Wharf, with music playing, to pick up father Christmas and bring him back to The Bear Hotel to switch on the Christmas lights.

If it’s shopping, eating, watching a film, going to the theatre, going to the races, visiting a cathedral or a National Trust property you’re after (not necessarily on the same day!), then Salisbury is for you. This beautiful market town has everything. Just wandering around the streets with its gorgeous timbered buildings is lovely in itself!
Indigo Antiques & Interiors recommends
Devizes Museum - run by Wiltshire Archealogical and Natural History society, a tiny museum with some amazingly interesting artefacts including an early bronze age sun disc made in 2400 BC. Open daily to the public, they also have activities suitable for families & schools.
Balmain & Balmain recommends
A great place to walk to or just for a visit. Wonderful place for tea or an ice cream in the summer and, if you are really lucky, some weekends they are put to work pumping the water back up the canal.
GyiDance - Dance Movement Psychotherapy recommends
A great way to get energised for the day with a trek up the hill and into nature. Met by woodland Pigs and landscapes of beauty, Box Woods takes you into a maze of ….. and leads you to an array of treasures, including The Greenhouse Restaurant. At the heart of the unique complex for older populations, The Greenhouse serves exquisite dishes in a light, yet warm and cosy environment as well as offering spa, health and beauty treatments. A must!
