The Sunday Times Best Places To Live guide place three towns in Wiltshire as some of the best places to live in the south west; the cultural offers in our towns contributes to this hugely.

For Corsham, the guide states “Anywhere with a genuinely independent bookshop …… must be worth a look… As well as the bookshop, there’s Andrew Manners, a luthier who repairs and restores guitars…. This is an arty town with local works on display in the window of the Right Angle framing shop and the Pound Arts Centre devoting three studios to emerging talents….An arty town that casually struts its stuff”
For Tisbury, Messums Wiltshire is recognised as being a “top-notch art gallery”
