You don't have to go very far from the town centre to find a wealth of activities and events to participate in. 

Wiltshire Heritage Museum

Devizes hosts what is reputed to be the best Bronze Age Museum in the country in Long Street. 

The Wiltshire Museum hosts a whole variety of events and activities.

Many of these activities are free or at low cost.  Free entry is available on certain days.  It really is worth a  visit and suitable for the whole family.




The Kennet & Avon Canal Trust Museum is located at the Wharf and between them is the Wadworth Visitor Centre which runs tours twice a day, beer tasting and lunch.

If its food and drink you are looking for then there is a wide range of cuisine to be found that will satisfy most tastes and at very reasonable prices.  Many outlets have ethical sourcing policies either towards Fairtrade or local produce. A recent BBC food programme highlighted Devizes as being able to provide food with the lowest mileage.  All produce being sourced within 5 miles.


You can meander the streets of the town where there are more listed buildings than just about anywhere in the country with a variety of styles going back several decades.  There are also over 250 different shops in the town centre.

Follow the Trust for Devizes Town Trail

Or you can take a leisurely stroll along the towpath of the Kennet & Avon Canal, with conveniently located watering holes along its length.

There are many other delights within the town such as the recently re-landscaped Hillworth Park or the quiet seclusion of Drew's Pond.
