Well if you are there is plenty of it and mighty fine examples of the Traditional Ale brewers craft are there for you to sample.However there is a lot more to this tour than Beer.An interesting visitors centre ,a couple of stunning shire horses (Sam and Jac), gleaming harnesses and vintage industrial architecture. Becky our guide was friendly and knowledgable and led us up and down the brew house allowing inspection of the coppers, mash tun's and fermenting vessels. Great Value for money and a must do if you are visiting wiltshire or on your way to the west country.

I've passed this museum many times and finally got to visit it. It's a super place and the staff were most welcoming. It has a wide range of prehistoric artefacts, in particular from the Bronze Age. Finds from local sights include some exquisite gold pieces. The local history is interesting, while the Anglo-Saxon room contains some rare pieces. I rather rushed round but do allow more time.

Caen Hill Locks

Reviewed By NottinghamFishcake

The locks are both an amazing feat of engineering and beautiful, with the reservoirs housing all manner of wildlife. What made our experience best of all were the Canal and River Trust volunteers who helped us achieve the flight in near record time! Cheery and informative.. we had a great day. Thank you

Stunning views. Not wheelchair friendly and some steep drops through the woodland so with little ones you need to keep and extra eye. Definitely worth visiting!!

Rowdey Cow Farm Cafe

Reviewed By AngelaM007 - Westbury, United Kingdom

I’ve been wanting to visit for a while and persuaded my husband to try it. The ordering was very organised and felt safe. A bit of a queue for ordering but our food was hot and very good. Lots of animals for the kids to look at and a play centre. The Icecream looked good and there were plenty of people trying it. Great for families.

Well organised from booking through to the trip itself. Short cruise of approx 90 min from Devizes wharf, turning in the winding hole then travelling East as far as Devizes Marina. Nice tranquil journey with opportunity to purchase drinks on board. Well done to the voulenteers who crew the craft.

Hillworth park

Reviewed By JennyT1768

We were finding somewhere to turn around and came across this little gem! My 6 year old loved it as she's tiny and struggles with the bigger climbing equipment. My 2 year old thought it was brilliant!! The gates open inwards so little ones can't just push their way out so it's much safer. We didn't get much of a chance to see the rest but it looked good from where we were. I feel the gym equipment was too close to the little park as my 2 really wanted to play on it but it wasn't really suitable. All in all very pleased to have stumbled across this today! Wish we'd had a chance to get to the cafe as it looked good. Will definitely go back!
