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
Marlborough (population 8,395, 2011 census) is situated in Wiltshire — one of England's most sparsely populated counties. But we're not talking splendid isolation here, far from it! Marlborough is a very acceptable place to live, no matter whether it's your main home, or second home and for any and every age group.
Although Marlborough doesn't have a railway station, it's only a 1 hr 10min journey to London Paddington from Pewsey station (a 15-minute drive from Marlborough) and London is just over an hour away if you take the train from Swindon, which is a 25-minute drive from town. Trains to Paddington from Great Bedwyn station — 20 minutes away by car — take around 1 hr 15 mins.
Marlborough's estate agents can offer home seekers a rich variety of properties — from red brick terraces, riverside retirement developments, large and detached Victorian properties, modern homes to charming thatched cottages, although purpose built flats are thin on the ground.
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.)
