Marlborough

An archetypical English market town, Marlborough, in the north east corner of rural Wiltshire, is located on the banks of the River Kennet and the ideal location for a cottage holiday in a beautiful part of England.

The picturesque town and stunning surrounding countryside offer plenty of activities for those who enjoy the great outdoors, and the area''s rich heritage and historical attractions are well worth exploring.

The town''s High Street is home to many stunning examples of historical architecture and the jewel in the crown is the Merchant''s House. The house was built by a wealthy silk merchant in 1653 and still retains much of its original interior, where internationally acclaimed paintings and decorative features can be seen.

The High Street is believed to be one of the widest in Britain and at either end of it stands a church of great historical importance. The Church of St Peters, with its gothic-inspired tower, was built in 1460 and has since stopped serving as a place of worship, today serving as an arts centre that welcomes thousands of tourists annually. St Mary’s church, at the opposite end of the street, is also of architectural importance, and bears the scars of a battle in 1642 during the English Civil War fought between the monarchists and parliamentary forces.

There are plenty of outdoor activities to keep you occupied. The River Kennet is the ideal place to rent a canoe or kayak and go exploring, or for the less adventurous, there is plenty of opportunity to enjoy a spot of fishing. There is an abundance of walks through Marlborough and into the surrounding Wilshire countryside, and many trails and cycle paths lead past the river and into the Kennet Valley beyond.
