WELCOME TO TIMELESS WILTSHIRE.
Wiltshire has been a special place for a very long time and our World Heritage Site stands testament to the ages. Stonehenge and Avebury have a magnetism that has drawn people to them for centuries. But history in Wiltshire is not just ancient. Romans, Normans and Saxons have all left their mark on our countryside and towns. Come today and you can walk through time. Here in Wiltshire you can touch and feel the past. Be inspired with what Wiltshire has to offer from the past to the present day.
There are so many things to do, on the ‘must see’ list alongside the World Heritage Site is the medieval city of Salisbury with its magnificent Cathedral, Longleat and the National Trust’s gardens at Stourhead.
