The Merchant's House
The house (at 132 High Street) was home to 17th Century silk merchant. It provides an insight into the lifestyle and interests of a middle-class family during a century when modern Britain—an outward looking, emerging capitalist country and one with a maturing political life—was coming into being.

Marlborough, in the north east corner of Wiltshire, is the archetypical English market town. It's also one of ‘
The UK’s top 23 towns to live in’ according to The Times...
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.

(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.)
