Surrey Street improvements

The first phase of the street’s £1.1m improvement works has ended. The intensive programme of works include improved drainage and the installation of new cabling to support an upgraded street lighting scheme and levelled pavements to enable easier access.

The renovation of the 700-year-old market and street will continue with new architectural lighting and the installation of public art due to be carried out in the next few months, to help create a vibrant, adaptable, pedestrian friendly zone.  Surrey Street has a great atmosphere and is bursting with independent traders, street food, homemade and artisan produce, arts and crafts, making it a perfect choice for shopping, rest and play.

The completed works will help create a more flexible market space which will boost growth and help ensure the market becomes a truly vibrant destination. Trading since 1276, Surrey Street is the oldest market in Britain. It operates six days a week, selling a range of items, including fresh produce, fruit & vegetables.

A formal launch event to celebrate the upgraded street and market will take place on Saturday 24 June, where a wide range of entertainment will be on offer. Further details about the event will be available shortly.
