Corsham is renowned for its independent shops and businesses. In fact, many of our shops are award-winners and between them have Countryside Alliance, Muddy Stiletto, Bath Life and Taste of the West awards and nominations.
The town centre is well worth a visit, particularly if you’re looking for something different, with shops on Pickwick Road, along the historic and beautiful High Street and in the Martingate Centre. We have the traditional – butcher, greengrocer, deli, hardware shop, book shop, shoe shop, bakery – as well as arts, antiques, vintage wares, cakes, fashion, collectable comics and toys, and lots more.
And there are some great eating and drinking places too!
Corsham is also a Fairtrade town. Since 2012, the town has been recognised for its commitment to Fairtade and the Fairtrade Foundation. Fairtrade ensures that the producers of goods we cannot produce in the UK are given a fair price for their products; that their communities are supported and that producers are encouraged to use environmentally friendly farming methods. Fairtrade products are available, or used, in our shops, food outlets, businesses, schools, churches and other community organisations.
