Marlborough's weather is here!
Marlborough, in the north east corner of Wiltshire, is the archetypical English market town
In 1086, Marlborough was recorded in the Domesday Book as 'Merleberge'. In later years it was a place where coins were minted, Tudor kings hunted for deer and coaches heading west from London stopped to feed and water their horses. It would seem therefore, that the town was at the heart of things in days gone by.
Although Britain's coins are now manufactured in Wales, the coaches fill up with diesel and venison comes straight from one of the town's splendid butchers, Marlborough still has something of a cosmopolitan buzz about it.
There's plenty of accommodation, excellent shopping and a wide choice of places to eat and things to do, making the town an ideal destination for a long or short break at any time of the year.
On Saturdays and Wednesdays the High Street hosts a market selling all kinds of stuff from locally produced meat and vegetables, to pots, plants, pashminas and pottery. A number of continental markets also descend on the town, but mainly in the summer months.
And when you contact any of the businesses on this website, please mention that you found them through www.marlboroughwiltshire.co.uk. Thank you.
(There isn't a Tourist Information Centre in Marlborough, but you should be able to find all you need to know about the town on this website.)
Welcome to Marlborough!
