Love the Outdoors? Here are our top 3 things to do in Wiltshire


Date Posted

Wiltshire is home to some of the most beautiful countryside views in the UK. So, what better place to spend the summer? Take a look at our list of the best spots to visit…

Stonehenge, Amesbury

One of the longest standing world heritage sites, Stonehenge is thought to be over 5,000 years old. The mystery surrounding the origin of its stone circle is one of the main attractions to the site and has made it one of the most famous historic monuments in Europe.

But make no mistake, a visit to Stonehenge is much more than a sightseeing experience. With exhibition tours available for a fee, you can learn about the lives of the Nordic workers who maintained the site for thousands of years.

What’s more, Stonehenge is just 13 minutes’ drive from our new homes at King’s Gate*.

Salisbury City Centre and Cathedral

Just 15 minutes’ drive from our homes at Longhedge Village*, Salisbury City Centre has plenty to explore. With a large shopping centre, you’ll have a variety of shops, pubs, and restaurants to explore. The city also has a range of green outdoor areas to take a breather.

One of the largest attractions in the city is Salisbury Cathedral, which was built in the 13th century.  Here, you’ll find a 14th century clock and a towering 123m spire – not to mention the incredible architecture of the Cathedral itself. You’ll also have the opportunity to see an original copy of the Magna Carta, one of the most influential historical artefacts. If you’re a budding historian, this cathedral is the perfect place to be.

 

Castle Hill Country Park, Salisbury

If you’re looking to make the most of the British summer weather with your family, there are few better places to be than Castle Hill Country Park. Located just outside Salisbury City Centre, there are great paths and trails for enjoying the views overlooking the city. If kite flying is your thing, the open space is perfect for catching the summer breeze.

You’ll find a small bike course and climbing area nearby, so there’s something for children of all ages. The country park is also dog friendly and has a dog training park near the car park, so the whole family can get involved. Even better, Castle Hill Country Park is just a short drive from our homes at King's Gate.
