Things to see and do in Wiltshire

Magnificent Malmesbury

Close to Bath, Bristol, Cirencester, The Cotswolds, Tetbury, The Cotswold Water Park, and even London, Malmesbury is perfectly placed for an afternoon visit, day trip, weekend break or fascinating longer stay. There are wonderful places to visit nearby such as Westonbirt Arboretum, Cotswold Water Park, City of Bath and much more. That’s if we can tear you away from the comfort of the hotel and the unique, independent shops in Malmesbury town.
