Hotels in Trowbridge
On the other side of the Mendip Hills from Bath, the town of Trowbridge was once known as ‘the Manchester of the west'. The nickname was given after Trowbridge became a major hub of wool production. It acts as the county town for Wiltshire and is named in the Domesday Book as ‘Straburg'.
Visitors to Bath regularly choose Trowbridge hotels for their convenience, and take the opportunity to look around the town at the same time.
History and architecture
The old Trowbridge Castle is no longer standing, but you can see the outline of the building down Fore Street. The castle was recorded as being besieged in civil war in 1139.
A stained glass window in St James' Church pays tribute to local man Henry de Bohun. He owned the castle and was part of the group that pushed King John to sign the Magna Carta. The church itself dates back to the 13th century, and has been restored several times.
Learn more about the town at Trowbridge Museum. The Magna Carta has been displayed here on the major anniversaries of it being signed.
