Pocket Guide: Malmesbury Malmesbury Abbey Hotels

As well as being one of the most naturally beautiful parts of England, Wiltshire is packed with treasures from across the millennia, dating all the way back into the dark recesses of pre-history. From the prehistoric stone circles at Avebury to the Cathedral in Salisbury, there's no shortage of fascinating relics to please holidaymakers throughout the year. Malmesbury Abbey is among the most popular attractions in Wiltshire. Located in the bustling market town of Malmesbury, just west of Swindon, the Abbey is surrounded by excellent hotels, guesthouses and bed and breakfasts.

The Abbey's Rich History

Since the founding of a Benedictine monastery on the site way back in around 676AD, Malmesbury Abbey has seen its fair share of twists and turns. The religious house, dedicated to Saints Paul and Peter, was always the centre point of the town, with building reaching out from this holy centre.

By the time the Domesday Book was put together in the 11th Century, the Abbey was already well established. At that time, the site was home to the second largest library in all of Europe, making it a popular spot with travelling academics. When Henry VIII dissolved all the monasteries in Tudor times, the Abbey survived by becoming a Parish Church.

The Abbey that stands today was largely built around 1180. Unfortunately, the collapse of the Abbey's 431ft spire around 1500 crushed a large portion of the structure. What remains is still an enchanting and dramatic site, well worth the visit.

An Inviting Attraction

The Parish Church at Malmesbury Abbey survives today as a thriving centre for the community in this lively town. Admission is free for visitors, and there's plenty to see around the site. The impressive Abbey House Gardens are a popular spot for events, weddings and summer afternoon strolls.

Hotels near the Abbey

With so many visitors heading to the county each year, hotels in Wiltshire are generally of a very high standard, and the Malmesbury area is no exception. The Best Western Mayfield House Hotel is situated just to north, in Crudwell, offering a comfortable stay in a pretty period building. Nearby Swindon is also a hub for excellent hotels, conveniently located for exploring the rest of this special county.
