Wiltshire is known as a paradise for any archaeology fanatic - the evidence of pre-Roman archaeology are all around. The Mesolithic, Neolithic and Bronze Age people that occupied southern Britain have left much evidence about their presence. Wiltshire holiday makers will enjoy the vast and sparsely inhabited county. Salisbury Plain, the biggest expanse of chalk grassland in country, divides Wiltshire from the very North down to South. Actually, two thirds of the county lies on chalk, giving it a characterised high chalk downland landscape.
Being situated on the border of South West and South East England, Wiltshire has a moderate climate. The annual mean temperature is approximately 10°C, with July and August being the warmest months with a mean temperature around 21°C.
Wiltshire boasts of a unique historical heritage. The marvellous and mysterious Stonehenge is Wiltshire's best-known landmark and a World Heritage site. At the time of the Solstice thousands are attracted to this special site to celebrate. Along with Stonehenge, there are many undiscovered wonders of history in Salisbury Plain - the vast and mystifying expanse of wilderness.
Many tourists are attracted by Avebury and more than 20,000 other places interesting from archaeological and wildlife point of view. Wiltshire is untouched by the human expansion. More than ¾ of county's territory is protected and listed as a special landscape or area of outstanding natural beauty.
Wiltshire is a home of many Royal Army training camps. That's why many call Wiltshire the safest place in Britain! Despite lacking any large companies and business establishments, Wiltshire is the county with the lowest unemployment rate.
Wiltshire is a predominantly rural county. It has a low population density. A quarter of the county's inhabitants live in settlements of fewer than 1,000 people. Though areas of Salisbury, the county town of Trowbridge, and Wiltshire's many historical market towns, such as Chippenham, Devizes, Marlborough, and Wootton Bassett are busy places attracting holiday makers from both Britain and abroad. Malmesbury in the north of the county is known as the oldest borough in England. It was granted the royal charter from King Alfred in the year of 880. Wiltshire is characterised by its high downland and wide valleys.
