Marlborough, in the north east corner of Wiltshire, is the archetypical English market town – a place where coins were minted in Norman times, Tudor kings hunted for deer and where coaches heading west from London stopped to feed and water their horses.

It would seem, therefore, that Marlborough was at the heart of things in days gone by. And although Britain’s coins are now turned out in London, the coaches fill up with diesel and your venison comes straight from one of the town’s splendid butchers, Marlborough still is a town with a big buzz.

There’s plenty of accommodation, good shopping and a wide choice of places to eat. So all in all, Marlborough is a great place for a long or short weekend break at any time of the year. Because Marlborough is a market town - yes you guessed it - on every Wednesday and Saturday the High Street hosts a market selling all kinds of stuff from locally grown produce to pots, plants, pashminas and pottery.
