Members can access a farming shop here and use the loom in the south-east room. There are pigs and piglets on the farm, though they can not be attacked. In the north-eastern field of the northern farm are several allotment patches, notably for beginning farmers. This farm is often referred to as 'Falador Farm'.
Rimmington mine[edit | edit source]
Spirit tree patch[edit | edit source]

Player-owned ports[edit | edit source]
Stores[edit | edit source]
Betty's Magic Emporium[edit | edit source]
In recent times, running wizard hats has become popular, because they are worth nearly 100 times as much at the Grand Exchange as they are here.
Grum's Gold Exchange[edit | edit source]
Grum's Gold Exchange is located directly south of Betty's Magic Emporium. Grum runs the store and sells various jewellery. Players can purchase rings, necklaces, and strung amulets. The store is stocked only by other players selling their jewellery.
Brian's Battleaxe Bazaar[edit | edit source]
Gerrant's Fishy Business[edit | edit source]
On the north wall of the store respawns a white apron. Fishing poles and Lobster traps are also common occurrences.
Wydin's Food Store[edit | edit source]
The store plays an important part in the Pirate's Treasure quest. Players can also be hired as a worker for Wydin once they reach a certain point on the quest. Once they are hired, they can receive free food. If you ask him what he recommends he will tell you about bananas.
The Rusty Anchor Inn[edit | edit source]
The Rusty Anchor Inn is located east of Brian's Battleaxe Bazaar. The inn is owned by the bartender, and sells beer for 2 coins. Due to an update, the musician located in the bar is just like regular musicians (except for the bug, described below in the trivia section). The Inn also plays a small part in the A Void Dance quest, whereby several patrons, and even the barkeep are under the draining effect of the strange goo, located in the basement of the inn.
The port[edit | edit source]
North dock[edit | edit source]
Members can travel to Entrana from here. The monks will not allow player to carry weapons or armour, though it is possible to import materials to fletch a bow and arrows or to craft leather armour. Runes are also allowed.
West dock[edit | edit source]
All players can travel to Karamja from this dock, for a price of 30 coins. There is a right-click option on any of the sailors, to "Pay fare" and travel without any additional dialogue. This price will be reduced if wearing Karamja gloves, or the trip will be free after asking, while wearing the ring of charos (a). Both items are members only.
Centre dock[edit | edit source]
- The Lady Lumbridge, a ship in need of repair, is moored here. She features in the Dragon Slayer quest. After the quest the original owner reclaims it and paints over the name with paint, denying that it was once the player's.
- The Void Knights dock can be found on the centre pier. Talk to the squire to go to the Void Knights' Outpost where members can play the minigames Pest Control or Conquest.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- If you look in Gerrant's Fishy Business and the axe shop, you can see one tile that is not like the others. Another tile like it floats above it. This is yet to have been fixed. This is only present in Minimum - Low detail.
- Port Sarim has been in Gielinor since DeviousMUD.
- When using the home teleport spell to Port Sarim, a bug used to occur when the loading screen gets stuck on "Loading - Please wait. (50%)" forcing the player to have to restart RuneScape. This has since been fixed.
- After the update that made "Listen to" the default option of musicians, Jagex forgot to change the text on the musician in the Rusty Anchor Inn. Clicking "Talk to" will result in your character sitting down and listening, while "Listen to" will begin talking to the character you clicked "Talk to". This has since been fixed.
- The cemetery outside Port Sarim refers to several of Shakespeare's works, Including references to Ophelia, Horatio from Hamlet, etc.
- Port Sarim was founded on roughly the same area that Port Lina, a settlement from the Fourth Age, had previously existed on.
