With its pretty honey-coloured stone buildings and reputedly, the widest high street in the country, Chipping Sodbury boasts an enviable choice of restaurants, pubs and shops, including traditional butchers, bakers and greengrocers.
Pretty tea-rooms and quaint cafés jostle for position alongside a variety of fashion, gift and high quality art shops. At the heart of Chipping Sodbury, however, lies the town's pride in its heritage and many of the events, fairs, festivals and carnivals that take place here today have done so for many centuries.
There's a popular farmer's market every other Saturday and music lovers will appreciate the annual Sodbury Jazz Festival, which, in the past, has welcomed iconic musicians such as Kenny Ball, Jacqui Dankworth and Acker Bilk to the town.
There are plenty of modern-day facilities and services on offer of course, including the new Waitrose supermarket which is within walking distance of Barnhill, the town library, tennis club and a diverse range of social societies, clubs and groups that all help give this lovely town a welcoming and vibrant community feel.
