Walking the Ridgeway Trail from Avebury to Ivinghoe Beacon is more than just a stroll in the woods or a trip to the coffee house for a mug. The scenic aspects are spectacular, the trail is clean, except in the early spring, and the variety of vegetation plus the historic sites (castles, barrows, and chalk carvings, etc.) offer a bounty...

Wiltshire is a beautiful county, with magnificent walks. There are stone circles, white horses, many historical places of interest, far reaching views over rolling hills. Savernake Forest is a lovely place to visit for a picnic, canals, rivers, lakes, everything you could wish for.

Have done some of the 70 mile or so white horse trail with a friend whilst in training for the 5 Peaks challenge. It is a fantastic walk (the bits of it that we have completed) and I look forward to going back and completing it some time. highly recommended

One of our favourites is along the river Kennet (access the cycle track at Barnfield) and then go down the steps on the right. There is another path high up over the Kennet valley. The path leads up from the right hand side of chopping knife lane. Walks in savernake forest are a must.

Plenty of walking from Avebury and on to The Ridgeway. Very unspoilt countryside.The Ridgeway is an ancient long distance path with amazing views.

stunning location with a great sense of ancient history. We walked in Savernake forest. It was difficult to navigate at times and some of the named ancient trees did not have names on them so it was a little hard to find them at times but the forest was amazing and we will definitely be back.

Riverside walk by Marlborough College, Old railway line towards Swindon, Savernake Forest or just round Marlborough itself. All good, but the old seat would be welcome. Some signage would be useful on the old railway line and in the forest. Dog happy with all !!
