Its one of England's most historic places with some exceptional architecture bundled together to make a destination packed with character. The streets are not for the faint hearted as they were mainly built for the rather narrow horse and cart. In fact Malmesbury is England's oldest borough dating back heavily to the years of King Athelstan. Below is a picture of the Market Cross at the heart of the town, an ancient 800 year old monument used (and still used at the Saturday farmers market!) to sell your wears.
You will also undoubtedly bump into our wonderfully imposing Abbey at the heart of the town which dates back to 676 AD. A place rich in history and beauty that acts as a beacon for all our residents. (below)
Last but not least follow the bustling shops to the town centre and you will surely trundle into the Abbey House Gardens run creatively by Ian and Barbara Pollard (also known as the Naked Gardeners). An imaginative and creative are of gardens packed with exotic colourful flowers and sculpture.
As you can see what Malmesbury lacks in hustle and bustle it more than makes up for in history and heritage. Enjoy.
