Salisbury on Market Day

Visit Salisbury on Market Day

Salisbury is still laid out in a medieval ‘grid’ system and many of the streets still retain names of the old chequer system like Blue Boar Row, which was the home of the Blue Boar Chequer. Most of these chequers derived their names from the local inns that could be found there. Take a stroll and see examples of medieval history within the city including a medieval ‘doom’ painting in St Thomas’ Church in the city centre. It is widely believed that St Thomas’ Church pre-dates the Cathedral and was used as a place of worship by the stonemasons and builders of the soon-to-be place of worship. Why not visit Salisbury Cathedral. See the world’s oldest working clock, the best preserved original Magna Carta in the Chapter House and stained glass from across the centuries.  The Market Place has been holding regular markets since receiving its charter in 1227 and became an important area for trading local wares. On the corner of Butcher Row and Minster Street, the Poultry Cross still stands and remains one of the city’s landmarks. It dates from around 1250 and was once one of the four market crosses that indicated where the market could be found. As its name suggests, people used to sell poultry from beneath it. Enjoy a coffee or tea in one of the many cafes or sample something more substantial in one of the many places serving delicious meals.
