Not only preserving history - but keeping it alive...

Set in Wiltshire's neolithic landscape, with nearly 500 listed buildings, a fine brewery and the most impressive flight of canal locks in the UK, Devizes has a lot to offer visitors. You can take a narrowboat ride on the Kennet & Avon Canal, see locally brewed ale still being delivered by horse-drawn dray, and sample this ale at the brewery, or in one of the many traditional pubs in the town.

It's also a great place to live, with some of the lowest crimes rates in the country, a variety of great coffee shops and restaurants, and easy access to beautiful countryside.
