Central Area

The central streets of Bath are home to a treasure trove of different shops, from high street favourites; Marks & Spencer, to distinctive independents such as; chocolatier Charlotte Brunswick or the fashionable Sisi & May. Stall Street and Union Street provide a lively route through the length of the city and are lined with tempting treats including confectionery, jewellery, fashion, accessories, homeware and more. In this area, and adjacent to Bath Abbey, you’ll find Bath Aqua Glass, home to beautiful hand-blown glassware and jewellery. Explore beyond these main streets and meander through the picturesque passages and alleyways, where you’ll find an eclectic mix of smaller retailers offering items that simply can’t be found anywhere else. Wander through The Corridor, a historical shopping area and one of Britain’s first examples of an indoor arcade. Meanwhile, the covered Guildhall Market hosts a selection of traders specialising in second hand books, vintage jewellery, gorgeous leather handbags and wallets and speciality food stalls. Fashionistas can get their style fix at boutique clothing store Grace & Mabel before browsing the latest collection of luxury handbags at Radley.
