Malmesbury is one of those few remaining market towns with a thriving town centre that is very much alive. You will find a small but comprehensive range of shops including local independents and national chains, providing for the everyday needs of local residents.
Athelstan Museum has a wide ranging collection illustrating many aspects of Malmesbury history.
There are so many items that it is impossible to show all of them, or even a major part, so displays are rotated on a regular basis.
With over 1300 years of history, the first King of all England buried somewhere in the garden, two saints thrown down the well, and now one of the great gardens of the world. The spirit of the place shines through and could be the best garden visit you ever make.
