pretty bog standard English shopping mall, really! Dec 17, 2010
I'm writing on someone else's review, so as a local I thought I'd better fill you in. This place is really called 'The Old George Mall'. It's a pretty bog standard shopping centre, but with a few quirky little shops alongside the more established (in the UK, anyway) brand names. It's a good place to go for a little bit of shopping or a quick something to eat, but you'll find much better shopping places elsewhere. In fact, a lot of locals leave Salisbury to do anything but their normal grocery shopping.

Places worth checking out in The Old George Mall include a great outdoor shop near the Cathedral entrance and a couple of good book stores (Waterstones and a large WH Smiths). It's just a shopping mall, though so it's unlikely to excite you all too much!

Best shopping luck in all of England Jun 02, 2005
We had a chance during our tour to do a short walk through Salisbury. Of course a few minutes was spent at the beautiful Cathedral, which has the tallest (404 feet) spire in all of the U.K. But we also took some time strolling the pedestrian only area downtown. They have many shops, boutiques, and departments stores.

We felt extremely lucky to find a craft store on High street that had hand fashioned hummingbirds. Highly detailed and artistically formed we had to buy it. (see picture)

We ate at a local fast food shop and had to run back to our tour bus to make it in time. Just too many good things to see in this town.
Such a nicely detailed Hummingbird…
