Moving to Marlborough?
"Like large swaths of southern England, Marlborough attracts high-end housebuyers because of its good schools and transport links. However, this Wiltshire town of just 8,000 residents has a third and much rarer draw: an excellent high street". ft.com
"Well connected? The M4 is only eight miles north. You'll have to fight for space on the rush-hour roads to nearby stations at Swindon (zillions of trains to Bristol and London) and Pewsey (72-80 minutes to London, every hour or two). This is a town famous for its posh college, alma mater of luminaries Chris de Burgh and Kate Middleton". theguardian.com
"Walks abound in this stunning party of the county, including Savernake Forest, The Ridgeway and Avebury’s World Heritage Trail. The Merchant’s House in the centre of town was built following the Great Fire of Marlborough in 1653 and brings back to life a family who lived through one of the most tumultuous periods in history. Marlborough College Summer School has an incredible range of day and residential courses for all ages, with cinema and theatre under the stars. Marlborough LitFest runs annually (although cancelled this year), and Marlborough Rising is into its third year on the music-fest scene, a three-day banger of an event showcasing live music from acoustic strings to blues, and orchestral pop to songs from the shows".muddystilettos.co.uk
