Visitor Information

Marlborough and the Local Area

Marlborough is a quintessentially English market town situated in an Area of  Outstanding Natural Beauty.  During your stay, you can discover historic buildings, take a stroll on the Marlborough Downs or enjoy some retail therapy along the bustling High Street.

Located just a short walk from the college, the town centre is steeped in history, with many characterful old buildings.  Visit the 17th century Merchants House which features nationally acclaimed wall paintings and decorative features.

You'll be spoilt for choice with fabulous eateries and cafes.  Sample the delights of The Food Gallery or enjoy a cuppa at St Peter's Church.

Marlborough is a shopaholic's delight, with high street brands, designer boutiques, quirky independent stores and a twice-weekly market.

Savernake Forest is perfect for a relaxing ramble or a more adventurous hike.  The Forest is home to many veteran trees, including the famous Big Belly Oak.

The spectacular World Heritage site at Avebury features the largest stone circle in the world. Nearby you can explore the West Kennet Long Barrow, one of the UK's more impressive Neolithic chambered tombs.

Stonehenge is further afield and is a world Heritage Site that attracts visitors from across the globe.  After a walk around the iconic stone circle, step inside a Neolithic house and come face to face with a 5,500 year-old man.

The beautiful cities of Bath and Oxford are approximately 40 miles from Marlborough.
