Wiltshire Mircolight Center (travel time 5min approx)

Wiltshire Microlight Centre is a BMAA registered school operating from its own registered airstrip. The centre is owned and run by twice European hang gliding champion and ex-RAF pilot Tony Hughes. Tony has been a senior BMAA inspector since 1993 and undertakes Annual Permit Inspections and check flights for both flexwing and 3-axis microlights.
The flights take you over the stunning Marlborough downs with views over Ancient sites like Avebury stone Circle, Silbury Hill and the White Horses. In the summer months the flights are the best way to see the huge and complex crop circles that appear in Wiltshire.
The microlight center is located between Calne and Avebury on the A4 just outside the village of Yatesbury.

Wiltshire Balloon Rides

Wiltshire makes a fabulous balloon flying destination with rolling hills, ancient stones, and mystical crop circles; this is a county with character. Balloons take flight from Devizes, Salisbury and Swindon.


Bath Boating Station (travel time 40min approx)

Messing about on the river! The river Avon through the center of Bath to be exact.
Pick a nice sunny day, head down to Bath Boating Station and hire one of their beautiful traditional rowing boats, skiffs or punts and you will not regret it.
This has to be one of the most glorious ways to explore a side of Bath not many people get to see. So peaceful and serene you would be forgiven for forgetting that you are in a city. Very highly recommended. Open from Easter till the end of September.


Oasis Leisure Centre (travel time 35min approx)

Oasis sports centre in Swindon is a great place to take the kids for a swim. Much more than just a pool, oasis has a wave machine, fast flue rides, big slides and a juniors pool and mini slides for mini people.


Link Center Ice Rink (travel time 35min approx)

The Link Centre houses the international-sized (26m x 56m) ice rink and provides an extensive programme including public skating, ice hockey, figure skating, ice dance and pairs skating, as well as Learn to Skate courses, and private lessons.
