Testimonial

Steeped in history going back to prehistoric times Marlborough has had an interesting past including the Battle of Marlborough in 1642, burning down in the Great Fire of Marlborough in 1653 and being a favoured haunt of medieval kings.  William the Conqueror built the Marlborough Castle sometime before 1070, the notorious King John loved hunting in Savernake Forest, Henry III spent much of his time in the now vanished castle and Henry VIII regularly visited Jane Seymour in Savernake.  Situated on the main route from London to Bath Marlborough became an important coaching town in Elizabethan times.  A 17th century Silk Merchants House in the High Street is one of the oldest remaining buildings and is open to the public.
