Ancient Malmesbury

Malmesbury, once considered the most defendable town in Britain due to its position on a flat topped hillside, it is also allegedly England’s first capital. Malmesbury Abbey is still standing to this day, although at around one third of its original size and is a thriving community church with a window commemorating the town’s flying monk. A couple of minutes walk takes you to the privately owned Malmesbury House and Gardens where you can explore the 5 acres of beautiful gardens with walls and gardens that have fragments of 12th century carved stone re-used from the abbey.

Visitors looking for a foodie treat should look no further than Whatley Manor and choose The Dining Room, with 2 Michelin stars, or the more relaxed ambience of Grey’s Brasserie.  One surprise in town is Michael’s Butchers, Bistro & Deli. A great place to stock up on the essentials to take back to your holiday cottage, but not before you’re tempted to stay for breakfast or lunch where the food is to die for and the portions are generous. Work off those extra calories on the circular River Avon Walk taking in local landmarks such as Daniel’s Well, The Silk Mills, The Old Courthouse and St John’s Alms houses.

If you’re lucky enough to visit in July then you won’t want to miss WOMAD – the World of Music, Arts and Dance festival, suitable for all ages, with live bands, workshops and world food the festival prides itself on bringing guests and artist together over food at their Taste the World events. Children also get to experience Taste the World as they get up close and personal with chefs demonstrating recipes from around the world.

No trip to Malmesbury would be complete without a shopping trip centred around the historic High Street where you will find a fantastic collection of unique independent shops nestled alongside high street names. If you’d prefer to make your own holiday gifts then hop on over to Roki Pottery where artist Kim Langley runs day courses. For food shopping the weekly Farmers market held every Friday at the historic Market Cross is home to an array of local, fresh organic produce alongside artisan products made by local craftspeople.
