In & Around Devizes

Much of the county of Wiltshire is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty making the region a perfect destination for a relaxing break at any time of the year. Much of the area still remains largely undiscovered, a rural idyll less than two hours from London. Almost at the centre of it is Devizes and, although we might be biased, it is acknowledged as being a beautiful and historic market town. 

Devizes was originally bounded by three manors, hence its name - a version of 'ad divisas' meaning, at the boundary. The town contains elegant houses of the 18th-century whilst Tudor houses can be seen in St. John's Alley. Unusually, in this day and age, it has managed to retain a lot of individual shops and has a traditional market on Thursdays and a Farmers Market on the first Saturday of the month.

Devizes has lots of things to see and do:
Attractions in and around Devizes include Caen Locks
Regional attractions include Bath, Salisbury and Stourhead
