Wiltshire is home to many heritage sites including Salisbury Cathedral (American writer Bill Bryson calls this ‘the most beautiful building in England’) and Stonehenge (an ancient burial site near Glastonbury, known for its annual music festival). This is also the county that has the most chalk ‘white horses’, carved many moons ago into the hills (nobody really knows why).
South West England is blessed with beautiful beaches and warm weather (if you prefer higher temperatures) and lovely countryside, further inland. It’s also home to two national parks (Dartmoor and Exmoor, both known for their wild ponies) and England’s southernmost regions of Land’s End and the tropical Isles of Scilly.
An area of contrasts, you could go sailing at an elegant seaside resort, or join the alternative travellers to celebrate the summer solstice. You’ll also find the beautiful yet contrasting cities of Bristol & Bath.
