The 6 Best Things to Do in Chippenham, United Kingdom (UK)

December 10, 2017 Rosalyn Ihle

Chippenham is a large historic market town in northwest Wiltshire, England. It lies 20 miles east of Bristol, 86 miles west of London and 4 miles west of The Cotswolds AONB. The town was established on a crossing of the River Avon and some form of settlement is believed to have existed there since before Roman times. It was a royal vill, and probably a royal hunting lodge, under Alfred the Great. The town continued to grow when Great Western Railway arrived in 1841; it is now a major commuter town.

John Coles Park

Reviewed By Debbie W - Chippenham, United Kingdom

John Coles Park is a brilliant place to have some alone time sat under a tree with a book or some good quality family time. There is a great playground area with a water splash area which is fab on a hot summers day. There is a little café on site which is very reasonably priced...

Have just returned from an afternoons go- Karting with our two children. Unfortunately my 7 year old daughter lost her confidence after a bump within the first couple of minutes and didn't want to carry on. We were refunded refunded for both sessions we'd booked in for and the staff were so lovely and helpful throughout our whole visit. Would thoroughly recommend

Chippenham Museum and Heritage Centre

Reviewed By Richard2369 - Llandybie, United Kingdom

Staying in Chippenham for a weekend break we decided to go to the museum to learn something of the area. We were not disappointed. This is a great little museum. A lot of information on Chippenham's history including its connections with Alfred the Great. The staff are very friendly and informative, even when we got locked in at the end of the day! A must visit for visitors to Chippenham.

The Yelde Hall

Reviewed By Robin042042 - London, United Kingdom

This is 15th Century Guildhall was used as the Council meeting room into the 19th Century. The restoration in 2001 was sympathetic and it is easy to see the structure of the building. Rather spoilt by a tacky exhibition in the main hall. But a top quality interpretation of the Council Room.
If you are passing Chippenham on the M4, make a detour for coffee and visit this heritage building.

St Anne Church Bowden Hill

Reviewed By Norberto64 - Buenos Aires, Argentina

La iglesia de las nubes, asi es como la conocen en el pueblo, dado que esta ubicada en la cima de la colina desde donde se tiene una vista increible de todo el condado, la encontramos de casualidad, es un lugar magico, se han hecho filmacione spara series y peliculas, dado que es magnifica su locacion.
La iglesia es pequeña y hermosa, integramente construida en piedra, como toda iglesia Antigua tiene a su alrededor un Cementerio muy antiguo, la iglesia abre solo 3 dias al mes para misas, muy recomendable de ver si estas por la zona.
