What to see and do
Set in beautiful countryside, this handsome former staging post on the Great West Way has evolved into a stylish and cosmopolitan town with its own café culture, offering lots of choice to visitors. With a twice-weekly market (Wednesday and Saturday), our High Street is lined with characterful old buildings housing an array of high quality shops, pubs and restaurants. Don’t forget to explore the side streets, riverside parks and green spaces too.
Close to Avebury and Savernake Forest, and set in the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there’s lots to see and do nearby.
Why not stay a while and make Marlborough your base for day trips a little further afield?

We produced a Town Guide back in 2013. The advertisements and listings/business information is mostly out of date, but there's some interesting information about the town, its history and the area, as well as a town centre map.
