Marlborough's coat of arms
Marlborough — activities
If golf's your game, then you have two courses to choose from — the Marlborough Golf Club
(private) which is a short walk, but up a steep hill, from the town hall end of town and the Ogbourne Downs Golf Club
(5-minute drive). Other courses include Basset Down
— a 9-hole, pay and play course, (15-minute drive) and Upavon
(20-minute drive). All Marlborough's golf clubs are pleased to welcome visitors.
Walk through the old Forest of Savernake— derived from ancient wood pasture management — and you'll see many veteran trees. The forest extends to 1,100 hectares (2750 acres) most of which is classified as a Special Site of Scientific Interest (SSSI) as well as being registered as an important historic park. One of Savernake's oldest trees is the Big Bellied Oak which can't be missed on the side of the A346 road, south of Cadley.
Marlborough Leisure Centre, which as at the College end of the High Street, has a sports hall, swimming pool, fully equipped fitness suite, sauna, steam room and soft play areas suitable for children. And you can book your swim online.
Visitors are always welcome to Marlborough Running Club's training sessions, which are held three times a week.
Gunsite Sporting Clays caters exclusively for the Sporting Clay Target shooter. With undulating terrain it is possible to present virtually every type of target, on a course managed and set by 17 time England shooter, Sean Ponting.
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. Thank you.
Welcome to Marlborough!
