Visit Hillbrush is set alongside the UK's largest brush manufacturer. It combines eating, shopping and a museum in one unique stop-off experience just off Wiltshire's busy A303. The museum documents 100 years of this vital trade's history; Hillbrush has been making brushes since 1922 and over 3,000 products are made there today. The fascinating visitor centre and modern restaurant complement the colourful, tactile and surprisingly family-friendly museum, which exhibits fibres from around the world plus examples of some of the first automated brush making machines.
In the bright, open-plan restaurant you'll find a range of high quality meals. The aroma of custom-roasted Bahia coffee beans swirls around cakes beneath glass cloches. Busy tables tuck into breakfasts and lunches, served with barista-prepared coffees. The shop bursts with unique local gifts and products from fellow Royal Warrant holders. Dogs are welcome on the sunny terrace.
