Steeped in history and oozing charm, the town could easily rest on the laurels of its renowned antiques shops, ruined Norman castle and architectural splendour to attract visitors. Instead it’s carved a very modern reputation as a foodie capital, with the world-renowned Food Festival each September, and at one point four Michelin starred restaurants – the most in any one place outside of London, yet in a town of only around 11,000 inhabitants.

Property hunters looking for somewhere with major historical kudos will love the half-timbered and Tudor-style properties as well as Georgian homes (there was once a plan to build a crescent of Georgian homes to rival those seen in Bath). The town has around 500 listed properties and former poet laureate Sir John Betjeman called the town ‘the loveliest in England’.
The town's Festive Fayre, tucked in around the castle grounds, should make you feel as cosy and traditional as a log fire (plenty of those in the town’s pubs and inns too!)
During the rest of the year it has a thriving market held three times a week and a high proportion of independent shops selling the local produce which has made the town such a magnet for top chefs.
The Jacobean ‘Feathers’ hotel in the centre of the town is renowned worldwide and said to be haunted.
