Marlborough College offers some impressive and unique locations for film and photography.
Founded in 1843, the College is one of the country’s leading public schools. We have a wealth of architectural styles on campus including 18th and 19th century houses, an Art Deco listed building, a 1960s dining hall and modern classroom blocks. Facilities include a 25-metre, eight-lane indoor competition swimming pool, Observatory, three theatres, two lakes, a beautifully restored Cricket Pavilion, AstroTurf pitches and an international-standard athletics track.
The Memorial Hall was opened in 1925 and is the principal memorial in the College to the 749 Marlburians who gave their lives in the First World War. Their names are inscribed on the wall. The hall itself comprises a semi-circular auditorium of stepped seats with an ambulatory at the rear, and a stage that can be extended as required.
The current Chapel, St Michael and All Angels, was consecrated in 1886. The window designed by Edward Burne-Jones and made under the direction of Old Marlburian William Morris is of particular interest, as are Eric Gill’s sculpture of the Virgin and child above the West Door and a series of large murals by John Roddam Spencer Stanhope.
