POET laureate John Betjeman described Highworth as “extraordinary because it has more beautiful buildings than ugly ones”.

He also wrote: “I have never seen Highworth given due praise in guidebooks for what it is, one of the most charming and unassuming country towns in the west of England.”

The picturesque town lies six miles north of Swindon and was once the most important town in north Wiltshire.  It has a wealth of history (including stories of tunnels and ghosts) and the Historical Society are busy investigating and recording for the Town.

Perhaps one of the greatest assets of the town is our people - you are sure to receive a warm welcome.
