Charter Fair

The Salisbury Charter Fair will return to Salisbury’s Market Place & Guildhall Square from Sunday 20 October until Wednesday 23 October!

In 1227 - seven years after the building of Salisbury Cathedral began - King Henry III granted a Charter to the Bishop of Salisbury to hold a fair on the third Monday in October. That same Charter granted the City permission to hold a market every Tuesday. Both the Charter Market and Annual Fair are still held to this very day.

Visitors can typically find the usual fair favourites including dodgems, hook-a-duck, waltzer and ghost train to name but a few. Not forgetting Candy floss, Toffee Apples and other refreshments that can also be found.

Each year there is generally a few new rides to enjoy too.
