Devizes is a colourful market town located in the heart of Wiltshire, 15 miles away from the M4. It has a wealth of medieval history and architectural heritage to explore whilst also enjoying the wide range of traditional independent shops that make up the town. It is seen a hub for all the surrounding villages that make up the local area.
The Kennet and Avon Canal was built between 1794 and 1810, linking Devizes with Bristol and London. Devizes’ canal locks are visited by most who visit as it is the perfect excuse for some fresh air. The canal path can we walked, ran, and cycled with many pit-stops along the way for a well earned rest.
Regularly reaching the top 10 of the country’s favourite market towns we can see why so many choose to relocate to Devizes and the local area. There is a great sense of community in the town with a full events calendar running throughout the year from an Art Festival to the International Street Festival and also a Food Festival – there is plenty to get involved with.
In the heart of the town you will find a weekly Thursday market alongside a wide range of shops, restaurants and cafes. You can also take a tour of Wadworth Brewery to sample their famous 6X and meet the Shire horses that still deliver to pubs in the town!
There is plenty of choice when it comes to housing in the area with a property built from every period. There are around 500 listed buildings in the centre of the town. These houses are all within distance to the local schools providing education for all ages with primary and secondary schools having a good local reputation.
