Top Things to do in Warminster

Bratton Camp and White Horse Warminster -
The original Iron Age hillfort defences were built at Bratton Camp over 2000 years ago. These earthworks protected a settlement containing round houses, granaries, stores and workshops.  The design and construction showed the effectiveness of the hillfort to its enemies. The site was excavated in the 18th century. However, three thousand years earlier a Neolithic long barrow existed on this hill, and later excavations in the 19th century uncovered human skeletons and cremations. Today, this extensive chalk grassland supports herb and grass species that provide a habitat for a diverse range of insects, including the rare Adonis Blue butterfly and the scarce forester moth. The White Horse is visible from a distance and is a famous local landscape. Cut into the chalk, the horse originally had to be scoured regularly to keep it white. The last recorded scouring took place in 1853. In the late 1950s, the horse was preserved by covering it in white-painted concrete.

 

Stourhead Stourton, near Warminster –
A Palladian house and world-famous landscape garden. When Stourhead first opened in the 1740s, a magazine described it as ‘a living work of art’. The world-famous landscape garden has at its centrepiece a magnificent lake reflecting classical temples, mystical grottoes, and rare and exotic trees, and offers a day of fresh air and discovery. Uncover the fascinating history of Stourhead house with an Italian ‘Grand Tour’ adventure and enjoy the unique Regency library, Chippendale furniture and inspirational paintings. The Palladian house is set amid ‘picnic perfect’ lawns and extensive parkland. Explore the 1,072-hectare (2,650-acre) Stourhead estate where chalk downs, ancient woods and farmland are managed for wildlife. The Palladian villa at Stourhead was finished in 1725 and had taken four years to build. The land had previously been owned by the Stourton’s and Henry Hoare I pulled down the near derelict Stourton Manor to build his fashionable Palladian country house which was designed by the Scottish architect Colen Campbell.

 

Longleat Warminster -
To wander through the sweeping corridors and grand rooms of Longleat House is to be transported back in time. Exploring this stunning example of high Elizabethan architecture – and the Capability Brown landscaped grounds surrounding it – is a day out in itself. It was substantially completed by Sir John Thynne in 1580. And today, his descendants are still lucky enough to call it their home. It’s also home to a vast range of animals in the world-famous safari park. You can hear a lion’s roar as far as five miles away. So just imagine how it sounds at five metres. There are also deer, rhinos, cheetahs, elephants, monkeys, wolves and zebra – all in separate enclosures of course! With such a full day out, you are bound to work up an appetite! The cafés offer great value and great quality with plenty of options for even the fussiest of eaters. The friendly restaurants, coffee bars and cafés supply everything you could possibly wish for on a busy day out so you don’t need to worry about feeding the family before you set out on your day of adventure.
