Wiltshire can be discovered from two main locations, Salisbury in the south and Marlborough in the north. The county’s only city, Salisbury, is beautifully nestled between the Avon and Nadder river valleys and is near to the world-famous Neolithic site of Stonehenge and other notable prehistoric areas such as Danebury, Badbury, Figsbury, and the ancient hill fort of Old Sarum. Marlborough is conveniently situated near more mysterious prehistoric sites, including Avebury, Silbury Hill and the chamber graves of West Kennet. On the chalky hills of the surrounding country are intriguing gigantic drawings of white horses, the origins and purpose of which still confound experts.
Both counties offers a selection of accommodation types and excellent restaurants, with nightlife mainly confined to local pubs and bars. Opportunities for recreation are also plentiful, with bird-watching, hiking and camping being among the most popular activities.
From Wiltshire, excursions can be made south into Hampshire and to the Isle of Wight or north into Gloucester and the Welsh border counties, while Somerset is the gateway to Dorset and the extreme southwestern region of Cornwall.
