Salisbury has continually been in the headlines over the past few weeks, and certainly not for the reasons it deserves to be. The attack on the Skripals was frightening and terrible, but the way our city has banded together to deal with it has made us here, at Regent, all the more proud to be part of such a vibrant, resilient and fascinating city.
People have been, perhaps understandably, reluctant to visit Salisbury in the wake of the Skripal case and the city’s business and trade has been suffering as a result – a result that seems especially unfair and which is not helped by the way the media have often chosen to report the affair. Regent wants to add to the affirmation that Salisbury is open for business and that there’s never been a better time to come and visit us, as the city bands together to prove as welcoming and open as possible in the face of adversity.
First off, Salisbury now has completely free parking, citywide, making it easier than ever to pop into town for a coffee and a browse – the city itself is picturesque thanks to the many medieval buildings it boasts, and it’s also easily walk-able, meaning you can take it in some exquisite sights – such as the Grade 1 Listed Poultry Cross – while perusing all the independent and one-off shops we have to offer here. Regent itself is incredibly proud to be situated on New Street, just off the High Street and right on your way to a visit of Salisbury Cathedral, surely one of the most spectacular buildings in the country and featuring the tallest spire in the United Kingdom. This jaw-dropping building alone brings thousands to Salisbury every year – if you want to sneak a particularly unique peek at it, drop into Regent along the way and ascend to the Games Room where you’ll find a stunning view of the cathedral, with the added luxury of being surrounded by some of the finest up-and-coming fashion carefully sourced by us from cutting-edge brands cherry-picked from London and around the UK.
