Ancient monuments of Wiltshire include Lansdowne monument, Stonehenge, Old Sarum, Salisbury cathedral, Silbury hill, West Kennet Long Burrow and Clearbury Ring. There is also the not so ancient museum of steam, the largest maze, a safari park, canal system and several market towns that are added attractions of Wiltshire.

The Lansdowne monument is a 38 meter stone obelisk supposed to be erected on lay lines by Sir William Petty. The cathedral of Salisbury has the highest spire of all churches in England. Silbury hill is a man-made mound and is the highest in all of Europe dating from the prehistoric (other Europeans had better things to do) and West Kennet Long Burrow is England's longest burial chamber.

Old Wardour castle has even appeared in Kevin Costner's film Prince of Thieves, and Lalock abbey in the supposedly blasphemous Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.
