Dining and shopping
Markets are held in the High Street every Wednesday and Saturday. There is a good mix of stalls: fruit & veg, artisan breads, cheeses, olives, flowers, clothing, tools, household goods, garden furniture and lots more. The only exceptions are when the road is closed for large events such as the Mop Fairs, if public holidays fall on market day, or in the case of very severe weather.
There are many cafes, pubs and restaurants where you can eat outside in fine weather, with a mix of High Street and independent shops. There's a cafe and craft shop as well as occasional exhibitions inside St Peter's Church too. But there's more to Marlborough than the High Street. Seek out Hughenden Yard, Hillier's Yard, Kingsbury Street, The Parade, Kennet Place and London Road. Overall there's a great mix of national retailers, independent shops, galleries, antiques, cafes, restaurants and pubs. A good number of shops are open on Sundays, usually between 10.00 am - 4.00 pm.
