Out & About
Situated on the banks of the River Wylye in the charming village of Longbridge Deverill, The George Inn is the perfect place to stay to discover everything that Wiltshire and the surrounding counties have to offer.
Our pub is a favourite with tourists from all over the world, thanks to our fantastic, enviable location. We are a short drive to numerous historic sites, and within easy reach of popular destinations such as Salisbury, Bath and Bristol.
We are lucky enough to have Stonehenge almost on our doorstep. Just a 30-minute drive away, Stonehenge is one of the wonders of the world and the best-known prehistoric monument in Europe. Anyone visiting the area for the first time simply won’t want to miss out on a visit to Stonehenge.
Another favourite destination, and one that will keep all of the family entertained, is nearby Longleat Safari Park, the first drive-through safari park outside of Africa. Just a 10-minute drive away, Longleat is home to more than 500 animals, and is situated in the grounds of Longleat House, a stunning English stately home.
Keen walkers will also want to visit the Longleat Estate. As well as being home to the safari park, the estate houses Shearwater Lake, a haven for fishing and sailing. Enjoy a stroll around the beautiful lake or a longer walk on the stunning woodland trails surrounding it.
Stourhead Mansion and Gardens is another beautiful, nearby estate, located at the source of the River Stour near Mere and just an 18-minute drive away. The garden at Stourhead is perhaps the most beautiful and magical of all the great landscape gardens, and is well worth a visit.
Bowood Estate is a bit further afield but don’t let that put you off. Just a 50-minute drive away, through the picturesque Wiltshire countryside, the estate contains a beautifully proportioned Georgian house in the centre of one of the most stunning parks in England, making it a gorgeous location for an afternoon stroll.
