Charter Fair

Salisbury Charter Fair will be returning to the Market Place on Sunday 17 - Wednesday 20 October 2021

Salisbury Charter Fair takes over the Market Place to light up the centre of Salisbury and bring fun for all the family!

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.

Nearly all rides will cost just £2 a go until 6pm with juvenile rides costing £2 at all times. Some prices may rise after 6pm.

The Fair will open from 2pm until 9pm on Sunday, and then 11am until 10pm Monday through to Wednesday.
