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 has buzz about it.
There's plenty of accommodation, excellent 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 Saturdays and Wednesdays the High Street hosts a market selling all kinds of stuff from locally grown produce, to pots, plants, pashminas and pottery. A number of continental markets also descend on the town, but mainly in the summer months.
