All wedding venues in Salisbury Plain
Stretching across Wiltshire and Hampshire, Salisbury Plain is an area of rolling downland, beautiful views and historic sites. It's most famous attraction is the mysterious stone circle at Stonehenge. The area has been used as a military training ground since the late nineteenth century, through both world wars, and is still home to army camps and training exercises today, making wedding venues on Salisbury Plain a good choice for brides and grooms with military connections.
Amesbury, with its quaint cottages, is the biggest town actually on Salisbury Plain. Other places to hunt for wedding venues are Warminster, Andover and Shrewton, as well of course as the historic city of Salisbury. It's easy to find a traditional hotel with a function room for your wedding ceremony or reception, with roaring log fires in winter and a garden marquee to enjoy in the summer. Other wedding venues on Salisbury Plain range from traditional pubs to grand manor houses. A converted barn and the spring blooms or autumn colours of botanical gardens are wedding locations too. Salisbury Plain venues are as good as any at offering last minute wedding packages and special offers for the budget-conscious.
The landscape of Salisbury Plain hasn't changed much over the last couple of hundred years, due to the need to preserve the Stone Age monuments and the Ministry of Defence's ownership. The chalk downs with their grazing sheep, the rivers, the scattered villages, and, of course, the stone circles, make a beautiful background for wedding photos any time of year, though a winter wedding, with frost sparkling on the fields and a red sun, is perhaps particularly gorgeous.
The A303 goes past Salisbury Plain, giving great views of Stonehenge and making the area easily accessible from the south and west of England. Your wedding guests are sure to enjoy visiting this lovely area.
