Warminster Hotels

The county of Wiltshire is perhaps best known for its ancient sites, including Stonehenge and the white horses cut into the hills of Westbury Worship and ritual have clearly been important in the area since antiquity and it is a tradition which has continued to the present day in the numerous churches and other sites of special spiritual significance.

One town with more churches than most is Warminster, made rich by wool trade of the Middle Ages and richer too for its corn market, with the legacy of these times evident in the imposing churches and other historic buildings found throughout the town. The best Warminster hotels, now as ever, are at the root of the town's enduring success.

Many of the historic buildings of the Market Place, the inns, warehouses and stores remain today, often reincarnated to provide modern business and leisure opportunities. Perhaps the most famous historic building is however the Minster Church, which pre-dates Salisbury Cathedral.

Much of the 12th century Norman parts of the Minster remain, including the central tower, a chancel wall and the south porch and with the later additions it forms the town's most important and impressive landmark. There are numerous other historic sights of interest, information on which will be available from most Warminster hotels.

Some of the best hotels display all the age and character of the town, whether as large grand establishments or the traditional coaching inns which played such a vital role in welcoming the traders of old. A classic inn has all the benefits of having a good local pub on site, with some hearty pub food too.

There are also more modern hotels in the town and whether old or new the latest features should be expected, such as work desks with WiFi connections. Larger hotels will often also have the facilities for hosting corporate events and private functions.
