From the big open village green in the centre of the town to its famous market, Devizes is a pretty spot to visit, full of life and atmosphere.
Despite its modest size, this historic town has hundreds of listed buildings, making it a remarkable place to explore.
While you’re there, make sure to seek out the 19th-century Market Cross in the centre. It’s a great spot for a photo, and the 11th-century Norman Castle.
During your travels around the centre, pay a visit to Brownstone House. This elaborate Grade I listed building dates back to the beginning of the 18th century and it’s been a home to a couple of members of parliament in its time.
If you fancy a tipple along with an informative visit, go across to the independent and family-run brewery, Wadworth Brewery and Visitor Centre. It’s been going since the 19th-century, and you’re sure to have a great educational and fun experience.
For a cultured trip, take the time to see the Wiltshire Museum, or spend an evening at The Wharf Theatre.
Places to eat and stay
The town was historically used as a coaching stop, so there are lots of lovely coaching inns to visit. To explore other restaurants in Devizes, start off with some of the relaxed bistros like Mayenne Café Bistro, pop across for an Italian at Dolcipani, or enjoy some tapas at Upstairs at Jacks.
When it comes to looking for the ideal Devizes hotel, try to stay close to the town itself. The Castle Hotel, The Bear Hotel Market Place, the Travelodge and The Black Swan are all good options.
But wherever you stay, make sure to see as much of Devizes as you can for a truly relaxing and fun break.
