How to find usThe Wiltshire Heritage Museum, Gallery and Library, and the headquarters of WANHS, can be found in the town of Devizes in the very heart of Wiltshire, at the convergence of the A361, A342, A4361 and A360. Although no direct rail link exists, frequent regular buses run to nearby Bath, Swindon and Salisbury and more infrequently to Chippenham, Trowbridge and Pewsey. All the buses stop at the Market Square.
The Museum lies approximately 500 yards due south of the Market Square on the West side of Long Street, one of the town’s most picturesque streets, lined with Georgian houses. It can easily be found by the wrought iron sign hanging above the arched entrance and the notice boards placed out on the pavement.
For car users, long term parking can be found in the Station Road car park and short term parking in the Market Square (although not on Market Day on Thursdays). Several smaller car parks are scattered throughout the town. Parking is also available on the side of most streets (this is restricted to 1 hour near the Market Square and 2 hours further away). We regret to say that the Museum cannot offer any parking except to those with mobility difficulties (please phone first).
For cyclists, walkers and canal boat users, the town is a major stop on the Kennet and Avon canal which runs from Bath all the way to Reading. The Museum is only 10 minutes walk from the wharf. Cyclists are welcome to leave their bikes just inside the museum's staff car park, but please note that it closes shortly after 5pm most days.
