Warminster dates from Saxon times and lies to the south west of Salisbury Plain, beneath the chalk downs, and at the head of the Wylye Valley, with its attractive villages and historic landscape. The town boasts many historic attractions of its own and an almost unrivalled proximity to a wealth of interesting and beautiful places to visit in Wiltshire, all within a 30 mile radius.
The towns architecture is based on local rubble stone, Chilmark and Bath stone, and brick and tiles from nearby Crockerton. It reflects the days when Warminster was a busy coaching centre.
Within easy distance of the town centre is the open countryside, which to the south has been officially designated an area of outstanding natural beauty. The many open spaces provide excellent opportunities for cyclists, ramblers, horse riders and hang-gliders.
