Why you should visit Wiltshire in January

From cultural experiences in the city of Salisbury to the magnificent Longleat Safari Park, there is something for all when you stay at our luxury hotel in Warminster.

With Christmas a mere memory away, thoughts on New Year’s Eve celebrations and January escapes at the forefront of our minds, we cannot think of anywhere more splendid than a January retreat into the Wiltshire countryside.

The Snow Mouse in Salisbury

During your stay at our family hotel in Wiltshire take a thirty-minute drive to the medieval town of Salisbury for a day trip to a bygone past. The magic of Christmas does not have to stop after Christmas Day when visiting the Salisbury Art Centre; you can tire the little ones out with the interactive magical puppetry show called the Snow Mouse. The performance is delivered by the renowned theatre companies, Bath-based The Egg and Bristol’s Travelling Light Theatre Company – watch as the children become absorbed by the music, puppetry and magic of the natural surroundings – the enchanting tale of the Snow Mouse has available showings on the 5th and 7th of January, booking is highly recommended so reserve your tickets quick!

Star Gazing in Salisbury

Make the most of the exceptional countryside of Wiltshire and its areas of outstanding natural beauty (AONB) with an evening of star gazing! On the 18th of January join Bob Mizon for an astronomical experience of the starry skies above the Cranborne Chase. Mr. Mizon is an expert astronomer and dark skies advisor who will regale participants with tales and information on the stars formations. This event is only held during the winter months and is certainly one unique experience not to miss during your visit to our luxury hotel in Warminster.

Longleat’s Winter Safari

For a truly unique activity during your winter stay at Bishopstrow take the whole family to Longleat for a winter safari! Climb aboard the safari buggy and hold on tight as you are in for a wild ride! Though many animals prefer to retreat into the warmth during the chillier months, many visitors are lucky enough to encounter some of the big cats, mischievous monkeys and the ever elegant Zebra!
