Brooks area and Middle Brook Street market
Within walking distance from the Winchester Cathedral, the Brooks Shopping Centre incorporates all the favourite high street names.
Time your shopping trip to coincide with the bustling city markets on Middle Brook Street. There is a weekly speciality local foods market on Wednesday and general street markets every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, selling everything from fruit and vegetables to flowers, second-hand books and hand made jewellery. On the third Sunday of every month there is also an Art & Design Market. The markets are situated near the Brooks Shopping Centre and behind Marks and Spencers.
Adjacent to the market you will find King's Walk. This specialist arcade is home to Winchester's antique and craft centre, a treasure trove of curios, from antiques, collectables and jewellery to beads and t-shirt printing. Rest your feet and put your bags down for a while in the centre's café which is situated on the first floor.
Jewry Street, Parchment Street and St George's Street also have boutique and specialist shops for art, antiques and interiors, while Winchester Guildhall plays host to regular antique fairs.
