The city of Bath is a shopper’s haven, combining the big name brands like Ted Baker, Urban Outfitters, Jo Malone, Apple, Anthropologie and Banana Republic, with an inspiring range of interesting independents.

Take the time to browse the quaint back streets and passageways to discover the unique specialist and independent shops and a delightful range of small cafes and delis.

Every year, for a period during November and December, the city is home to a sparkly Christmas treat as the Christmas market comes to town.  The market is a showcase for handmade gifts and local products presented in a fairytale setting of 170 wooden chalets.

Outside of Bath, our market towns also have vibrant high streets with a range of well-loved local independent stores and national brands.
