2015 sees the 800th anniversary of the signing of Magna Carta - as Salisbury Cathedral is home to the best preserved of only 4 original 1215 charters, and Trowbridge is one of the 25 Baron Towns, a wide range of Magna Carta-related events will take place in Wiltshire during 2015.
2015 is also the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. To mark both the Battle itself and Wiltshire’s contribution to Spitfire production, a varied programme of events will take place during Salisbury Wings Week in September. To top it all, Salisbury has been named by Lonely Planet as one of the Top 10 Cities in the world for travellers in 2015.
Within this guide you will find a detailed section on Refreshment Stops for your journey, from award-winning pubs and restaurants to cosy cafés and tea rooms. And why not make the most of your trip by extending your visit with one of our accommodation providers featured under Places to Stay.
