Things to do: parks, spas, outdoors
Warminster is a town and civil parish in western Wiltshire, England, by-passed by the A36 (between Salisbury and Bath) and the partly concurrent A350 between Westbury and Blandford Forum. It has a population of about 17,000. The River Were runs through the town and can be seen running through the middle of the town park. The Minster Church of St Denys sits on the River Were. The name Warminster first occurs in the early 10th century.HistoryThe town was first settled in the Anglo-Saxon period, though there are the remains of numerous earlier settlements nearby, including the Iron Age hill forts of Battlesbury Camp, Scratchbury Camp and Cley Hill, the last a site operated by the National Trust.There are indications that a Middle Iron Age settlement may also have been situated just west of the town.The town's prosperity following the growth of the wool trade in the Late Middle Ages caused the erection of many magnificent structures, including the Minster Church of Saint Denys, in a yew grove sacred from pre-Christian times, and including an organ originally destined for the then under-construction Salisbury Cathedral.

Where to stay

Hotels and inns along Warminster's high street, or main street, offer cozy, comfortable rooms within walking distance of the main attractions. Some attractions, such as Stourhead House and Gardens, are located a few miles from the town, but transportation is easy to arrange. Consider a cottage or B&B on the outskirts of town for outdoor activities and a view.
