It would be a shame to come to Marlborough for a couple of days and not to see some of the area's other nearby towns, villages and attractions.
Pewsey (yes the village sitting in the heart of the famous and beautiful Pewsey Vale) is a 15-minute drive to the south of town; drive west from Marlborough for 25 minutes or so and you'll find the historic market town of Devizes. Ramsbury and Aldborne lay to the north east of Marlborough and the pleasant town of Hungerford (Berkshire) is due east and 20 minutes along the A4.
Incidentally, there is no Tourist Information Centre in Marlborough, but you should be able to find all you need to know about the town on this website.
For the low down on what some of Wiltshire's other towns and villages have to offer, check out www.visitkennet.co.uk .
If you like to make contact with nature every now and then, then you
might find a picnic in order at Postern Hill, which is a 5-minute drive
away, or the beech trees of West Woods in nearby Lockeridge.
There are two National Nature Reserves in the area - Fyfield Down and Pewsey Downs.
And when you get in touch with (or visit) any of the businesses on this website, please mention that you found them through www.marlboroughwiltshire.co.uk.
