The area and getting around
Easily accessed off the M4 motorway, Wiltshire is barely a two-hour drive from London, and easily reached from the main airports of the south. Landlocked Wiltshire has a temperate climate making it lush and green, and a significant amount of its land is categorised as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The Cotswalds to the north, Cranborne Chase to the south and the North Wessex Downs to the east are all registered as AONB. The most delightful country villages are dotted around the county. The houses and buildings in Lacock, near Chippenham, are almost exclusively owned by the National Trust, with many being examples of fine 14th century England’s architecture.Wiltshire’s ancient buildings and structures
Previously one of the wealthiest and most important places in the world, Wiltshire has a rich industrial heritage. Visit the valleys created by the River Ribble where many of the mills used to be part of the cloth making industry. See how the cotton mills drove the economy, and led to the whole area’s prosperity. Castle Combe, a village in the west, is often referred to as England’s prettiest village. It sits on the Bybrook river, which meanders past the houses reflecting the trees and flowers growing by the riverside.
