Welcome To Wessex

Wessex offers the outstanding concentration of historical, outdoor and cultural heritage attractions. The area is essentially rural and timeless. It is a place that has kept up with the times but has not been dominated by them. And visitors are very welcome.

The area is compact, travel distances are relatively short and there is no need to move hotel every night.

The Wessex Countryside is quintessentially the English countryside having rolling hills and valleys, woods and heaths, fields and hedgerows. The small market towns and villages, the churches and pubs, the local fairs and festivals have a wealth of fascinating things to see and do. The specially designated National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty are also great areas for a wide variety of outdoor activities.
