Horsefair Shopping Centre

Shopping in the heart of Wisbech has never been easier, at the convenient and friendly Horsefair Shopping Centre.

Located in the very centre of the town with excellent road and transport links, the Horsefair Shopping Centre offers a wide range of outlets to meet all your shopping needs. From the weekly supermarket shop to fashion to something for a special occasion, the Horsefair Shopping Centre has 26 retail units to cater for all requirements and budgets and many are open 7 days a week (see Shops page).

With car parking for nearly 400 cars, and the close proximity of the bus station and taxi rank, the Horsefair Shopping Centre is easily accessible for residents and visitors alike. The car park is staffed full-time for extra peace of mind.


Named after the town’s historic Horse Fair that took place on the site between the 1600s and 1800s, the shopping centre was constructed during the 1980s, and opened by Noel Edmonds in 1988.

Fully-pedestrianised and supervised on a full-time basis, the Horsefair Shopping Centre offers a relaxed and welcoming environment that is a central part of the community. With regular events and promotions (see the News page), the centre offers a shopping experience that is truly at the heart of Wisbech.


I’ve been the centre manager of the Horsefair Shopping Centre for 11 years and it really is at the heart of Wisbech.
For me, it’s a place where the local community and visitors can relax, shop and socialise. I’m delighted to say that the centre is fully let with a whole host of stores offering everything from daily essentials, fashion, gifts for special occasions, plus a good choice of food and beverage outlets.
A favourite part of my job is organising our regular fun days and community events, so there’s always plenty for people to get involved with! Wisbech town centre is such a friendly place to work; when I’m walking through the centre I love acknowledging so many familiar faces and stopping for a chat. I look forward to welcoming you to Wisbech and the Horsefair Shopping Centre soon.
