Taste Wiltshire recommends
For the Cathedral and its environs and an old market city
The Pear Tree recommends
This amazing historical park which is currently free to visit offers a day out for families, a range of events or simply a stroll around its extensive grounds. It’s an under-used Wiltshire resource which deserves a better profile. It combines pleasure, leisure and history. We particularly love the Walled Garden which is carefully tended and the staff are always happy to answer questions and share their knowledge.
The George and Dragon recommends
Talking a walk around the village of Lacock takes you back in time, if you didn’t bump into a tourist you could feel you have been transported back. There is a lovely café called King John’s Lodge, which is a must on a sunny day, sit outside and have afternoon tea in their quaint garden. There are cute shops set inside the old buildings, so great for browsing. The Abbey is set in beautiful grounds, it’s a National Trust property so if you are member, more reason to visit.
Balmain & Balmain recommends
Walking through the Brails is a must, plus at the same time you can take in The Wilton Windmill, and if you feel up to it walk to the Bakery at Great Bedwyn to pick up lunch.
The Wiltshire Liqueur Company recommends
Enjoy a summer’s evening at one of the many Gala performances at Marlborough College during their Summer School – fantastic music and a wonderful atmosphere.
