Shopping in Sherborne

The main shopping area in Sherborne is centred around Cheap Street. This traditional high street is packed with boutiques, art galleries, delis and antique shops.

In between the shops, you’ll find charming street side cafes, many with outside seating to watch the world go by and admire the town’s beautiful architecture.


With a wide range of individually-owned shop and boutiques, Sherborne is a great town to find a unique gift, inspiration for the home and exclusive fashion.

Along with the independent shops are well-known brands such as Quba, Crew Clothing, White Stuff, Phase Eight, Face Fat and Mistral.
