Pocket Guide: England Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum Hotels

The rolling hills and characterful towns of Wiltshire attract good numbers of visitors each year. Enjoying some of the UK's best weather and featuring vast swathes of untouched countryside, it's hardly surprising that this county is highly regarded as a holiday destination. Among the county's highlights are the various archaeological and prehistoric sites, which are detailed in the Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum. The museum is located in central Salisbury, meaning there are plenty of excellent hotels nearby.

A Fascinating Museum

The Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum is based in a fabulous building, just across from Salisbury Cathedral. The Grade I listed King's House entertained King James I several times in the early 17th century. Now, the ornate period building houses an impressive collection detailing the county's past.

The museum tells the story of prehistoric and medieval Wiltshire, from Stonehenge to Salisbury. Items in the museum range from coins and weaponry to original artworks. There's a café, gift shop and even a lecture hall that hosts regular events.

Visiting the Sites

The contents of The Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum may be both exciting and informative, but no history buff's visit to Wiltshire would be complete without checking out the sites first hand. The world-famous Stonehenge is an enchanting spot in the picturesque rural countryside. The lesser-known historic sites of Avebury Stone Circle and Old Sarum are also well worth the visit for those seeking a hands-on insight into the county's prehistoric past and the beginning of Roman influence in the county.

Hotels in Wiltshire

From fancy and luxurious spa hotels to conveniently located and well-equipped hotels from some of the biggest names in travel, the range of hotels in Wiltshire features something to suit every taste. Salisbury itself is home to some of the county's finest hotels, most of which offer easy access to The Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum. The Old Mill Hotel offers peaceful, waterside location with free WiFi for guests. Across town, Milford Hall Classic Hotel and Restaurant is an ideal choice for those with a soft spot for Georgian architecture. Even in this town, which is packed with historic period buildings, this double-fronted Georgian property has a unique feel.
