An 18th Century Inn located in the heart of the market town Devizes
The Black Swan, Devizes, provides the perfect location for a short break with some fabulous historical icons such as Stonehenge, Caen Hill locks, and Avebury Stones nearby.
We are just a short drive from the City of Bath, the Cathedral City of Salisbury and the Avon and Kennet Canal, surrounded by beautiful Wiltshire countryside villages, of which two hosts the infamous white horses
The Black Swan Inn, formally ‘The Nags Head’ and private residence until 1737 boasts character and is well-known around the country for its involvement in the towns’ history. The function room served as the court of judgement for the town’s dignitaries
with the 18th Century Inn, standing opposite the original town gallows
Devizes boasts an intriguing history itself, an original market town based upon a hollow market square and ‘secret tunnel system’, original 18th and 19th Century buildings such as ourselves and the Famous Wadworth Brewery, a stones throw from our door.
Many stories come from such places and can be heard on the towns weekly Ghost walks.
We can cater for all occasions from a night away to your perfect day; a market day lunch, Christmas parties, birthday parties, private parties, meetings and conferences
