Things to see and do in Melksham

Melksham has an enviable location in the midst of the Cotswolds, the North Wessex Downs and Cranbourne Chase. This gives you brilliant access to wide open natural spaces, perfect for going on long hikes, dog walks, runs and bike rides. Green Lane Wood and Clanger Wood are also close to town, while the 90-hectare Spye Park is a few miles north east. 

King George V Park is back in the heart of Melksham, which is characterised by the pretty River Avon which flows through it, lending a pleasant ambience to the town. Kids’ attractions include the Boomerang Family Play Centre, while Bowood House and Gardens has an adventure playground, petting farm and soft play area to complement its 100-acres of landscaped grounds.

There are a number of schools to choose between in and around Melksham, with Aloeric Primary, River Mead School and Forest and Sandridge CofE all primary schools rated as good by Ofsted. The local secondary is Melksham Oak Community School, while you may find yourself in the catchment area for a number of other nearby schools depending on which part of Melksham you live in. 

Transport links in Melksham

Melksham train station is just off the A350 in the north of town, and offers a selection of Great Western Railway services. There are local bus routes you can take advantage of, while the A350 heads north to the M4 motorway. You won’t need this to get to Bath, which is less than half an hour’s drive away, but you can use it to get to Bristol a touch further west.
