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.

The Milsom Quarter boasts designers such as Nicole Farhi and MaxMara, as well as top fashion stores like Hobbs, Karen Millen and LK Bennett. SouthGate Bath is a newly opened shopping centre as only Bath could create, with wide open Georgianstyle 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.
