Originally developed around an eleventh-century Norman castle, Devizes, ideally nestled in the Wiltshire countryside, is steeped in history and brims with character as a vibrant market town.

Seamlessly blending its rich heritage with a dynamic local economy, today the town boasts over 60 independent retailers rubbing shoulders with national high street favourites, a lively arts and culture scene and numerous cafes, restaurants and pubs to discover.

Renowned for its Market Place, the epicentre of its thriving streets, home to a weekly outdoor market that champions independent local traders as well as a popular Farmer’s Market on the first Saturday of the month. A plethora of stalls and food offerings can also be found year round within the indoor Shambles Market Hall. Looking out onto Market Place is the Corn Exchange, a celebrated reminder of days gone by, now reimagined as an entertainment venue hosting a variety of concerts, shows and events.

A permanent fixture since 1875, Wadworth Brewery, and their popular 6X amber ale, is central to Devizes’ prosperity. Now featuring an established award-winning visitor centre, home to The Brewery Tap and Shop.
