Now we are in the midst of summer many of us will be looking to jet abroad.

Yet as these summer nights grow warmer and longer, we must ask, what's the point in leaving our shores?

We have an abundance of beautiful towns and villages stretching all across the UK, not least in Wiltshire. 

Home to the North Wessex Downs and attractions such as Stonehenge, the hamlets and villages surrounding our area make up some of the most desirable places to be in the whole country.Swindon Advertiser: Wiltshire is home to some amazing towns and villages (Getty)Wiltshire is home to some amazing towns and villages (Getty) (Image: Getty)

Worth a visit? Absolutely.

How to visit? Well, it's really quite simple.
