WILTHSIRE

Wiltshire is a county in South West of England that covers 1,346 square miles.  It is landlocked and borders the counties of Dorset, Somerset, Hampshire, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire.

Wiltshire is characterised by its high downland and wide valleys.  The city of Salisbury is notable for its mediaeval cathedral and there are a number of country houses open to the public, including Longleat near Warminster and the National Trust’s Stourhead near Mere, which can be found within the county.  The county has many historic monuments but the two most famous are Stonehenge and Avebury Stone Circles.  The large area within the county known as Salisbury Plain is the main training area in the United Kingdom of the British Army.

The Wiltshire economy benefits from the “M4 Corridor Effect”, which attracts both businesses and people wanting to live in the attractive villages and towns that are surrounded by the beautiful countryside of the county.
