Prehistoric stones, an old brewery and a brand new boutique hotel make this market town perfect weekend break territory
Tell me about it
Once a prosperous market town, Devizes is now a place most people drive past on their way elsewhere. But with a new boutique hotel and Stonehenge’s swanky visitor centre a short drive away, it’s worthy of a weekend break. Check out the handsome Georgian market square (it’s still market day on Thursdays) and medieval cobbled alleyways, and join a cracking brewery tour. Wadworth employs England’s last master cooper, and still delivers its beer around town by shire horse and dray.
Sounds like I’ll need a sample
You’re spoilt for choice. Join the Devizes Folk Club at the Lamb on St John’s Street for a pint of Wadworth’s 6X and some live music; or try The Vaults, just up the road, which serves the largest choice of beers in town.
