Pictures of Marlow
a Historic Market Town in the county of Buckinghamshire
The noted Marlow Place is a handsome red brick house built in baroque style for the George II when he was Prince of Wales. It dates 1720 and later it formed part of the Royal Military College before it moved to Sandhurst.
Marlow's graceful suspension bridge built in 1836 continues to be a dominant feature of the town, beneath it is an almost endless parade of colourful water vessels, river wildlife and it is surrounded by charming Georgian houses with the spire of the parish church looming above. The church, dedicated to All Saints stands on the site of a church built in medieval times, it is a traditional English church built in the 19th century to a design by C.F.Inwood. Interestingly, both church and bridge date from the same period ideally complimenting each other.
The town remained largely unaltered throughout several periods, its real development began following the dark days of World War II,and since then it has flourished to become a graceful riverside town with a strong attraction for visitors. It is also part of the commuter belt for those with business in London.
There is an excellent shopping parade with a vast variety of shops, these include food, newsagents, arts and crafts, and antiques. A good choice of restaurants can be found, together with inns, cafe's and for those who wish to discover this part Berkshire there are excellent hotels and guest houses.
