Stourhead is not far from Mere and a very attractive place indeed. It is a National Trust property and includes the village of Stourton. Makes for a great day out. Has a beautiful garden - relax!

Trowbridge. Nowadays the county town of Wiltshire. Shorthand writers - it is the birthplace of Isaac Pitman. There is a picture of the Sir Isaac Pitman pub at the top of the right hand column. The town centre has undergone an exciting revamp. 

Salisbury one of the gems of Wessex, a city with great shopping, a magnificent cathedral, historic buildings and to cap it all it is a good centre for touring the prehistoric county of Wiltshire.

Warminster is a town on the western side of the county. For the genealogists amongst us - It is now over a century since the First World War it is interesting to note that many soldiers from Australia, New Zealand and Canada were in camp in the villages around.  Warminster is quite a beautiful market town with a Georgian facade. 

Mere is on the borders of the county and of Salisbury Plain. It is a quite attractive small town. Plenty of walking and cycling opportunities in the area.

Longleat House is a beautiful stately home and owned by the Marquis of Bath. The animals roam free in the Safari Park, it was the first of its kind outside Africa. A very popular tourist attraction not far from Warminster or Frome. There are many events throughout the year.

Marlborough is an ancient and attractive market town on the north eastern side of the county set in a lovely rural area. Ancient it may be but it is modern as tomorrow. Good shopping. 

Swindon was made famous as a railway town. It is still a progressive town and expanding rapidly. The Old Town - try the alleyways and then the modern pedestrianised shopping centre. Experience the ambience of both. Swindon is a major centre and an important business town.

Calne, a pretty and historic town. Walk along the lovely river. The town is popular and growing fast. There is a white horse carved in a chalk hillside at Cherthill, sits below the iron age fort of Oldbury Castle. 

Westbury has another white horse. Some folk consider it is really ancient and celebrates King Alfred's victory over the Danes, but others consider it is an 1800's invention as some other white horses in the district. The town has an important railway junction which makes for easy access. Road access is good too.
