Malmesbury – the ‘Queen of Hilltop Towns’ - is packed with history, sights and stories.

Saints, Kings, flying monks, battles, rogues, heroes and heroines – and tigers -  are around every corner.

Each of our guided walks will give you new insights.

All walks are led by volunteers who have a passion for Malmesbury. 

We look forward to you joining us!
