Visit Wilton, the Ancient Capital of Wessex

Things to See In & Around Wilton

Wilton is a quintessential English market town with a history spanning more than 2,000 years. The town gave its name not only to the English county of Wiltshire but also to the famous Wilton Carpets, which are still made there today. Wilton lies three miles west of Salisbury, nestling in the junction of the Wylye and Nadder river valleys. Market day is Thursday and, with cash points and free parking, you have easy access to the wide range of traditional, family-owned shops, pubs, cafés and other services. Within a short walk of the Market Square and St Mary’s Old Church you will find the famous Italianate Church and a delightful river walk along the Wylye, running from St John’s Square through the Flouse Hole conservation area to Castle Meadow. Combine this with Wilton House and the factory outlets of Wilton Shopping Village and you have a unique and varied day out for families of all ages. In In June the Supercars and Church Festival take place and the annual Carnival and Big Lunch are held in early July. For most up-to-date events in Wilton keep an eye on the What’s On page.

Wilton House, often described as England’s most beautiful country house, is also situated at Wilton. The house has been the country seat of the Earls of Pembroke for over 400 years. The house is renowned for its gardens . The 21 acres of landscaped parkland, including four formal gardens, run down to the River Nadder. An exciting playground provides fun for younger visitors. There are many natural attractions around Wilton, like Grovely Woods, Langford Lakes, the famous Fovant Military Badges and the rolling downs of Cranborne Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Why not take time to explore these places and also to see some of Wiltshire’s loveliest villages and footpaths. If you like history, then you will find plenty in nearby Salisbury City, with its fine Early English Cathedral, medieval streets and nearby Old Sarum Castle. Near Tisbury, another local interesting village, you can discover the bloodthirsty past of Old Wardour Castle, or the long standing history of Salisbury Plain at Amesbury. Seven miles to the North of Wilton lies the World Heritage Site of Stonehenge, one of the most famous sites in the world.
