VisitWiltshire hosted their biggest ever International press visit this week with 24 journalists from 15 different countries on our two-day Magna Carta themed itinerary. Many of the journalists, who consist of key radio, TV and print media, not only reported on our Magna Carta 800 celebrations in the county but are filing feature articles to appear later this year.
