Places to visit in Wiltshire

Set your camera to panoramic view as soon as you arrive in Wiltshire. You'll want to cram in shots of the lush, green hills, valleys and plains. There are some fantastic places to explore with your family in Wiltshire. Perhaps the most snapped attraction is the druid ring of standing stones at Stonehenge, or the huge white horse etched on Cherhill. Mingle with moonrakers, the affectionate nickname for Wiltshire locals, in buzzing market town Salisbury on the lawns around the pointy gothic cathedral. Ridgeways between Iron Age hill forts and country lanes wind through this southwest county. Sturdy walking boots essential.
