Über

The House of Thomas Bayly was built following the Great Fire of Marlborough in 1653. Over the years 1653-1700 a fine timber and brick building was constructed, its interior panelled, brilliant with wall paintings and with a commanding oak staircase. A substantial amount of this fabric survives and hidden painted decoration is still being revealed.

Many of us are familiar with homes of the aristocracy; here is a rare opportunity to view a 17th century house of the type many of us might have lived in.
Thomas was a prosperous silk mercer whose lifestyle is reflected in the spacious and elegant rooms on show.

The house is a living place. Throughout the season there are demonstrations of costume making, needlework and historic paint conservation. Musicians often play music appropriate to the period.

The conservation that is still taking place makes the Merchant's House a special and unusual visitor attraction. Each year more of its splendours are being revealed and many visitors return regularly to view progress on the project.

There is a shop within The Merchant's House stocking a wide range of gifts to suit all ages and occasions.
