Wiltshire is famous for its White Horses, carved in the chalk landscape. There are two magnificent examples very near Tichborne's. These features are where the expression 'chalk and cheese' originated, describing the huge contrast between the chalky uplands, used for grazing sheep, and the lush dairy country beneath.
Originally designed as pleasure grounds for "public enlightenment and entertainment", the Larmer Tree is an extraordinary example of Victorian extravagance. Set in the outstanding landscape of the Cranborne Chase, on the Dorset/Wiltshire border, these beautifully laid out gardens were created by General Pitt Rivers in 1880.
As well as being a stunning place to visit, Marlborough is one of the best centres for ladies' fashion shopping in the South of England. With 20 plus shops ranging from boutiques featuring top designers to popular high street chains clustered around the gorgeous main street.
