For Walkers

Wiltshire has some of the most beautiful rolling countryside in England crisscrossed by many footpaths and bridleways.

From a path starting on the farm, connect to the White Horse Trail – iconic Wiltshire landmarks scattered around the county with the Cherhill White Horse just a few miles away.

For a relatively flat walk, try the towpath of the Kennet and Avon Canal which runs from Bristol to Reading. Start your walk in Devizes and check out the remarkable Caen Hill Locks – a staircase up the hill, a rack of 29 locks over a 2-mile stretch which takes about 5 hours to navigate by boat. There’s always something to see!

The Ridgeway runs west to east through Wiltshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire with the start point at West Kennet, just a few miles up the A4 – combine a walk with a visit to some of the counties oldest landmarks such as Avebury, Silbury Hill and the Longbarrow.
