Welcome to the beta pre-launch version of the Marlborough TOWNSITE™ where you can already browse articles on shopping, eating, events, history and activities in the most attractive and vibrant town in Wiltshire.

What is Townsite?

TOWNSITE is a unique mix of visitor information and local news, engaging residents and welcome to marlborough townsite attracting out-of-towners to this gorgeous and quintessentially English market town.

TOWNSITE's driving philosophy is to do our bit to keep our friendly, intimate towns in rude good health by shining a spotlight and celebrating everything local. Many lament the march of commerce to the more urbanised areas with their chain stores and franchised restaurants when something unique and altogether superior is on our doorstep. TOWNSITE seeks to halt this trend.

To do this we have created a one-stop virtual shop where you can find out everything you need to know about visiting, living, working and playing in gorgeous Marlborough. We tell you where you can spend or save, eat and drink, what's on and when. To make it a truly community affair, TOWNSITE acts as a message board for social and charitable events in town, giving free publicity to not-for-profit organisations. Everything from fine dining and literary festivals to the Scouts' Jumble Sale - we have it all.

Tried and tested

The timing is right. When the TOWNSITE pilot site was launched in Hungerford in 2014 it addressed a growing call for high street sustainability and the desire to use locally available products and services. We were greeted with enthusiasm by both

consumers and businesses who had grown weary of the dominance of corporations and the negative effects of online shopping on our towns, draining them of life and vitality. We supported local organisations and events not by running ordinary advertisements but by creating standout features and championing local events in a way which added real meaning for consumers and solid returns for businesses and groups.

Proud to be in Marlborough

It has been a year in the planning but we are now excited to be launching in Marlborough! In the coming months we are looking to grow the site so that Marlborough will have the same rich and exciting mixture of local news, visitor information, events,welcome to marlborough townsite shopping and special offers. We will keep visitors and residents up to date with details of products and offerings from Marlborough's unique selection of shops, boutiques, local food shops, bars, hotels, restaurants and cultural events. There is an awful lot to see and do in Marlborough so let's celebrate it and get the word out there!

Local good causes

TOWNSITE is more than just a commercial venture and functions as a community message board by offering features and publicity free of charge to local NFP organisations and charities run by volunteers for any events they are running or news they want to publish. TOWNSITE speaks to the very real need to bring revenue and focus back to our communities, building a solid sense of togetherness by drawing together all relevant information under one site.

Get in touch and have your say

TOWNSITE aims to be the one-stop virtual shop for everything you need to know about what is happening in your town but we cannot do this without your help. Our ear is ever to the ground to get the latest in what is happening, but we also relish
