Welcome to Royal Wootton Bassett

Royal Wootton Bassett is located just two miles from junction 16 of the M4, making it an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding countryside and discover its many visitor attractions.

The combination of the old and the new, the historic architectural gems, modern shopping centres and nearness to some of the country's greatest houses and historic villages, makes this town midway between Bath and Swindon an ideal location for living, working and visiting.
