The town is also home to a local cinema, a library and the old corn exchange.

Devizes offers great access to the Salisbury plain. A chalk plateau covering 300 square miles, the plain is known for its rich archaeological history and is home to one of the UK's most iconic sites, Stonehenge. Visit Wiltshire Museum in Devizes to discover fascinating exhibitions, featuring - among many other items from Wiltshire's history - gold from this world-famous stone circle.

The town is also home to Wadworth Brewery, whose iconic tower, built in 1885, is a true town landmark. Take a tour to discover more about the history of brewing, the Wadworth family and the modern-day brewing process. Head to the 'Brewseum', where you can browse fascinating brewing memorabilia, including a unique collection of hand-painted pub signs, all painted on site. You can also see the shire horses that still regularly deliver beer locally, one of the last brewers in the country still doing this!

And on a fine spring or summer's day, what could be better than a peaceful stroll along the Kennett and Avon Canal, which runs through the town. What's more, the famous Caen Hill Locks - a series of 29 locks rising 237 feet over a 2-mile stretch of water - are 2.5 miles from Devizes.
