Trains to Westbury trundle through the countryside of western Wiltshire, through the chalk downs that make up much of Salisbury Plain. Keep your eyes peeled for the famous Westbury White Horse, carved into a hillside on the outskirts of town. The station itself is a major junction, with trains serving Penzance, London Paddington, Cardiff, Portsmouth and Swindon. It dates back to 1848.
The town's is a haven for walkers and cyclists, with easy access to the downs and Salisbury Plain. However, the best way to see the surrounding countryside might be by air, with the help of one of the town's many hot air balloon operators or hang gliding and paragliding groups. In the town itself, check out the attractive Market Place, where you'll find the historic Lopes Arms Hotel and the 14th century All Saints Church. And on Church Street you'll find the longest serving indoor Victorian swimming pools in the UK, first opened in 1888.
