When it comes to shopping, Bath is a city of two halves.

The south is home to all your favourite high street stores, while the north buzzes with irresistible boutiques and independent shops, perfect for browsing. From Somerset Place, it's all just a short walk away.

SouthGate Bath is a recently opened shopping centre as only Bath could create, with wide open Georgian-style streets and more than 50 high street names.

For pure retail pleasure that's off the beaten track, lose yourself in the independent and specialist shops along Walcot Street, with their eclectic mix from reclaimed antiques to books and bikes.

The Upper Town, around Bartlett Street and Saville Row, is peppered with boutiques selling stunning womenswear, jewellery and accessories.
