Moving to Marlborough

Towns located on old coaching routes always have something of the romance of the highway about them. Marlborough sits on the old Bath to London coach road. Its rather grand High Street stands testament to its importance as a stop on the way to the capital. It’s also a market town with a history reaching back to the Middle Ages. There are still two regular markets every week, and frequent food markets throughout the year.


Marlborough is a Popular Choice for Londoners

Until fairly recently Marlborough wasn’t on the radar of families looking to move out of London. It doesn’t have its own railway station and so commuters need to travel from nearby Swindon. This makes a regular commute pretty lengthy (around 2 hours), and using the M4 to drive in takes around the same time.

Working patterns are changing rapidly, though, and the trend for more working from home means that town like Marlborough suddenly start to become an option. Plus, the property prices tend to be slightly lower because of the long commute. Families looking for a beautiful spot to bring up children, whilst having access to high-quality shopping and restaurants, would probably find that Marlborough ticks most of their boxes.

A Good Place for Families?

Marlborough is a small enough town to house a close knit, active community, whilst being large enough to allow you to mind your own business. The Wiltshire countryside is on your doorstep, as are a plethora of picture-box English villages. And the High Street is home to a mix of independents and global brands, as well as having a generous smattering of restaurants. No wonder it’s earned a place in the Sunday Times’ top 50 places to live in the UK!

Annual Events in Marlborough

Marlborough may be rural, but it’s certainly not sleepy! There’s a number of annual events which cover a range of activities:

  • International Jazz Festival. A weekend of jazz music in ad hoc venues across the town
  • Spring Fair. A fundraising event with over 60 stalls selling food and goods.
  • Literature Festival. An Autumn event, supporting good writing from across the world.
  • Feast of Food. “The best food and drink festival in the West of England” every October
  • Mop Fair. This ancient hiring fair has now become a funfair that takes over the Marlborough High Street for the first weekend in October.
  • Horse Trials. A cross-country event held in the Barbary Castle Estate
