Walking in Wiltshire

What better way to soak up the history and mystery of Wiltshire’s ancient monuments and countryside than on foot? The standing stones and sweeping hills around Avebury feel miles away from busy modern lives, and the traditional stone cottages in Lacock will transport you to another age, or perhaps the silver screen – you may recognise certain views from recent films and TV.
