Mobility: Marlborough is in a valley so some of the streets can be steep, although the High Street is level. Due to the age and listed status of the buildings some shops and restaurants are accessed via steps. The Marlborough Mobility Store at 55 George Lane (next to the long stay/coach park) hires mobility aids. Contact them for options and opening hours. Tel: 01672 511550.
