Historic Wilton
The town that gave its name to Wiltshire

The tour begins in the Market Place before a gentle stroll along ancient streets of this charming small town. We glimpse many aspects of its history, architecture and everyday life before an in-depth examination of the splendid Victorian Italianate Church.

  • King Alfred and the Viking terror
  • The Abbey, King Edgar & St Edith
  • A leper Queens ghost
  • A friend of Florence Nightingale
  • An American Ambassador in Wilton
  • And even a set of Dragon’s teeth!
