Old Wardour Castle, SP3 6RR
A hexagonal tower house arranged round a central courtyard, Old Wardour castle was built in the late 14th-century as a lightly fortified but showy residence.  It was besieged in the Civil War and part of the film Robin Hood Prince of Thieves was filmed here.

This iron age, hilltop town is surrounded by beautiful countryside.  The main attraction in the town itself is Gold Hill, the steep cobbled street with thatched cottages of Hovis Bread fame.
