The Market House is the focal point of Castle Cary and is a Grade II* listed building dating from 1855. Extensive renovation of The Market House was completed early in 2014 and this iconic building now offers internal and external areas to let for community and commercial events.

‘The Shambles’ – the old meat market, situated inside towards the back of the building – is now a superior venue for productions, lectures, exhibitions, workshops, consultations, films, meetings etc complete with a glazed roof, underfloor heating, seating up to 50 people, with a small servery and top of the range AV equipment.

From the Shambles, step out to the covered ‘Undercroft’ which is enclosed on three sides, with its pillared frontage open towards the street.

It is a perfect overspill area for events in The Shambles, and also provides a quirky covered area for extended markets and summer social events.

In front of The Undercroft is the cobbled area which is the focus of a Tuesday general street market every week throughout the year, 9am – 2pm, which is proving extremely popular, offering a wide range of goods. See Castle Cary Street Market


The Market House has been a major local meeting place for over 150 years, a focus for community events and home to the Town Council, Tourist & Community Information Point and a fascinating Museum.

The townspeople are very proud of this development and improvement to such an historic building and welcome exhibitors, performers, committees and visitors from far and wide to share their enthusiasm.
