  • A nice cultural experience with an excellent shop full of seasonal gifts.
  • Fantastic window into the history of several periods of this ancient house and business
  • An invaluable part of Marlborough's High Street with a carefully considered selection of gifts at a range of prices. The shop includes homewares, a wonderful room of children's gifts and lovely cards and wrapping paper for all occasions. And the volunteer staff could not be nicer or more helpful!
  • The Merchant's House Marlborough is really worth a visit - It shows how a 17th Century prosperous merchant would have lived. The pannelled chamber is stunning and houses their Christmas Shop in the festive season, and the lovely garden is worth a visit in Spring & Summer. They do tours - a great way to spend a rainy day and there's a lovely range of gifts in their shop on the ground floor.
  • Really nice :)
