Top 10 Recommended Rainy Days Out in Wiltshire


Salisbury Cathedral

Essential visiting when in Wiltshire and perfect for a rainy day. There's a cafe inside, too.

Wilton House and Gardens

Seat of the Earls of Pembroke for over four hundred years. The architecture of Wilton House is attributed to Inigo Jones.

STEAM, Museum of the Great Western Railway

Museum of the Great Western Railway (GWR) that celebrates the life of Isambard Kingdom Brunel, GWR engineer.

Bowood House and Gardens

Less well known than Longleat but equally impressive. 2000 acres of Capability Brown parkland so bring your raincoat!

Lacock Abbey

Used in the films Harry Potter, Emma, Pride and Prejudice and Moll Flanders. The Fox Talbot Museum is nearby.

Longleat House

An outstanding Elizabethan house begun in the 1560's after the original priory burnt down.

Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum

Superb local museum covering 450,000 years of Wiltshire history and prehistory. Bill Bryson said: 'Salisbury Museum is outstanding and I urge you to go there at once'.

Mompesson House

A National Trust property in the Cathedral Close in Salisbury.

Barn Exhibition

Ten thousand years of history and prehistory. We've visited this place on half a dozen occasions and it's always interesting.

Wiltshire Heritage Museum

A brilliant museum tucked away in the market town of Devizes. We cannot talk highly enough of this museum which specialises in exhibitions relating to nearby Stonehenge and Avebury.
