2 TO 16 DECEMBER - TIER 2 - KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Our wonderful shops and the majority of our cafes, pubs and restaurants are ready to welcome you back for sit-down meals with up to 6 members of your own household.
If you're visiting Marlborough you'll want to know that we're in Tier 2 which means:
People must not socialise with anyone they do not live with or who is not in their support bubble in any indoor setting, whether at home or in a public place.
People must also not socialise in a group of more than six people outside, including in a garden or public space.
Businesses and venues can remain open in a COVID secure manner, other than those which are closed by law.
Pubs and bars must close, unless they are operating as restaurants.
Hospitality venues can only serve alcohol with substantial meals.
Hospitality businesses selling food or drink for consumption on their premises are required to provide table service only. In premises which sell alcohol, they need to close between 11pm and 5am with some exemptions, and stop taking orders after 10pm
5 NOVEMBER TO 2 DECEMBER - OPEN FOR TAKAWAY AND CLICK & COLLECT
While we are all staying local during lockdown there's no excuse not to eat well or go without those essentials from "non-essential" shops.
Take a look at the fabulous range of takeaway food and drink on offer, from a quick coffee and a sandwich to Sunday lunch and even fine dining for a special occasion.

Welcome to Marlborough
Marlborough is very much open for business and ready to welcome visitors
For a taste of the diverse mix of independent, specialist shops and fabulous places to dine just waiting to be discovered take a look at our feature on two of our beautiful yards just off the High Street
If walking is more your thing, we have a new self-guided walk just in time to catch the autumn leaves and help you find Big Belly Oak, Old Paunchy and a host of other ancient oaks in Savernake Forest
The thriving town of Marlborough and the neigbouring pretty village of Manton are set in the stunning scenery of the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There's countryside within 10 minutes walk of the High Street in almost any direction, and downland, stone circles and ancient Savernake Forest are literally on our doorstep and the River Kennet chalk stream flows through the town centre. The town has remained unspoiled, retaining its historic charm and is perfectly situated on the old Bath Road (built by order of the Kings of England) linking Bath to London - the Great West Way is a rich and enticing route for visitors to explore to this day. A favourite watering hole for coach & horses travellers in the past, Marlborough is a cosmopolitan destination today continuing to welcome visitors from all over the world.
