A historical hamlet of Great Britain
This Wiltshire town is like a drawing of old England, and is a picture-perfect place to spend a British break. With strong roots in the country's royal and military history, this small historical hamlet was even mentioned in the Domesday Book - the �Great Survey� manuscript completed in 1086 by order of King William the Conqueror. On the food front, Wootton Bassett serves up some of the best in British cuisine, with its perfect mix of tearooms, fish and chip shops and traditional pubs.
Get hands on at Farmtastic Animal Farm
Families will love interacting with the wildlife, farmyard animals and pets at the Farmtastic Animal Farm wildlife park. Feed the animals, take a lamb for a walk up the country lane or stroke one of the guinea pigs, rabbits and kittens. For a small fee, you can enjoy a tractor ride around the paddock, and there is a picnic area to enjoy your own packed lunch. If you fancy something a bit warmer, the cafe serves up some tasty hot lunches.
