Fish Row is where fish was sold in ancient times and follows on from Butcher Row famous for the meat. The buildings are all extremely old and beamed, most are restored but some are hidden behind modern facias. There are delicatessens, coffee shops, one of Salisbury's most famous butcher shops and much more. A short lane but one to see.

Plenty of cafes, most of which have tables and chairs outside for al fresco dining, traditional pubs, and a baker, delicatessen, bookshops, tea merchants, clothes and shoe shops. Cobbled street and lots of sandwich board signs and street furniture might make it a bit hazardous for those with mobility of sight problems, so mind how you go!

We wandered the streets, late at night and during the day. The back streets have retained many of the ancient attributes, even though they are located amongst modern buildings.

How well preserved this area is. A really nice little street. You don't even realise the age of it as it is so well adapted and preserved. Coming from London we really don't appreciate the older places in the country. Well worth another visit.

Quaint street that has many stories to tell - just a short walk from the market square - make sure you watch your feet as its a little uneven in places.

Street full of old buildings and nice shops in the centre of Salisbury, just off the market square. Full of character and next to Butcher Row.

I live about 10 miles form Salisbury and have been shopping there on and off for over 20 years. I'm afraid to say that I will avoid going there until they sort out the traffic problems and the condition of some of their road surfaces as well. The shops are generally OK with all the usual chain stores etc with... More

I have sat here previously on a Summers morning (early - before 8) and just observed Salisbury coming to life and found it a reflective point where along the lines of John Betjamin can imagine where the man with the briefcase might be heading to start his day or the Lady with Coffee in hand might be opening up.

Its one of the oldest little streets in Salisbury with old butcher shops next to modern coffee places. Interesting to see the mixture between really old and modern busy street life but easy to imagine how busy it must have been in earlier days.
