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
From 28 August to 16 October you can take advantage of FREE PARKING FRIDAYS at George Lane car park (SN8 4BX for satnav) so there's no excuse not stay a while and explore our wonderfully wide High Street and beyond. There are more retail therapy and dining options in Kingsbury Street, The Parade, Kennet Place and London Road just waiting to be discovered
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.
