Marlborough is situated in the picturesque rural north-east of Wiltshire. Much of its great natural beauty is environmentally protected and it offers the discerning visitor a unique blend of modern attractions and facilities. Site of a twice-weekly market, the High Street is one of the widest in the UK and lined on both sides with characterful old buildings housing an array of high quality shops.
The town displays the confidence of wealth from times past, yet today remains vibrant and progressive with its own chic café culture.
The Merchant's House - one of the finest 17th century middle-class homes open to visitors in England - is also to be found here and contains a wealth of period features, paintings and artefacts.
The cosmopolitan flavour of the town is greatly enhanced by the annual International Jazz Festival which takes place in July and the Food Festival in October.
