Local Information:

Marlborough is a market town and civil parish in the English county of Wiltshire on the Old Bath Road, the old main road from London to Bath. The town is on the River Kennet, 24 miles north of Salisbury and 10 miles southeast of Swindon.


The High Street is one of the widest in the UK and lined on both sides with characterful old buildings housing an array of shops.


The Merchant's House - one of the finest 17th century middle-class homes open to visitors in England - is also to be found on the High Street here and contains a wealth of period features, paintings and artefacts and on-going restoration (see opening times).


Also on Marlborough’s High Street is St Peter’s Church, now a community centre with an arts gallery and café. At certain times visitors can do a tower tour for great views over the town.


Among Marlborough’s many claims to fame is the mysterious Merlin’s Mound which can be found within the grounds of Marlborough College and is the reputed burial place of the wizard Merlin. The Duchess of Cambridge also attended this famous college.


Walkers will enjoy the nearby Savernake Forest, to the southeast of the town. Head here during late spring for the bluebells and in autumn for the fantastic colours. The North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty encompasses much of the countryside around Marlborough and there are ample walking and cycling routes throughout this area. Marlborough is also located very close to the Avebury World Heritage Site.
