Welcome to Marlborough, Wiltshire


Merlins Marlborough is a visitor information website where you'll find all you need to enjoy Marlborough and the surrounding area.

The picturesque market town of Marlborough lies in the heart of the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is the closest town to the World Heritage Site of Avebury, now voted the second-best worldwide.


Marlborough is renowned as a fashion mecca with its wide selection of independent shops as well as its coaching inns, excellent restaurants and wonderful choice of accommodation.  The town has a unique architecture, partly due to rebuilding after the Great Fire of Marlborough in 1653, and as the widest high street in the country, it can be truly described as a town of great character.


Once the residence of William the Conqueror, Henry I, and King John, Marlborough has been enjoyed by many notable people over the centuries, including Cardinal Wolsey who was ordained here. Samuel Pepys stayed here in 1668 and wrote about it in his diary and the author William Golding lived on The Green. Lady Jane Seymour was married to King Henry VIII at Wolf Hall, near Marlborough, recently made famous by the BBC television series. More recently Kate Middleton, Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge attended Marlborough's famous College.


Whether you are looking for adventure, exploration or a gentle break, Marlborough has it all. We love it here and hope you will too.
