If you love shopping then a visit to Salisbury is a must.
People have been travelling to the city for hundreds of years for the Charter Market, which takes place regularly in the heart of the city.
Find out more about the different shopping experiences you can have in and around Salisbury…
A Market City
A twice weekly Charter Market is held on Tuesdays* and Saturdays, filling the Market Place with stalls, selling an array of items from fresh produce and deli food to clothing and household goods.
Other markets regularly come to the city including a fortnightly farmers’ market, a monthly vintage market and more recently the teenage market which takes place once a quarter.
The city also welcomes the Salisbury Christmas Market every festive season, held in the historic Guildhall Square.
(*except the third Tuesday in October)
Salisbury is blessed with a wealth of independent shops specialising in everything from arts and crafts, fashion and homewares to specialist food, sports and health.
Notably these shops can be found on Fisherton Street, Winchester Street and the High Street, but why not visit our independent shops page which lists more of the wonderful independent businesses that can be found throughout the city.
Be sure to pay a visit to Fisherton Mill at the northern end of Fisherton Street– it’s one of the south’s largest arts emporiums where you can pick up something unique to remember your visit or take a well-deserved break at their award winning café.

• The Cross Keys – home to TK Maxx, Richmond Classics and some cosy coffee shops
