Shopping in Bath
||Bath really is
a shoppers' paradise and if you’re planning to visit
make sure you pencil in at least a day to savour the delights
of a truly different retail therapy experience.
The city centre is dripping with labels and every other
shop seems to offer designer chic.
Try Shires Yard [map] , which is a unique shopping
courtyard offering outlets like Jane Claire Fine
Shoes, where you’ll find the best in footwear
from designers such as Lagerfield and Valentino, and Square,
which offers clothing from Stella McCartney, Marc Jacobs
and Prada. You can also sample fine chocolates at Shires
Yard and excellent cuisine at the Moon and Sixpence
If you’re looking for an unusual gift or
accessory for yourself or the home head to Walcot Street,
which is a haven of independent retailers and arts
and crafts stockists.
Enjoy seeing bespoke products put together before your
eyes and choose from a selection of traders offering glassware,
homeware accessories, children’s clothing, and retro
Saturday on Walcot Street [map] means the flea market
and this is about as close to Camden Market as you’ll
get outside of London, so don’t forget to find that
vintage dress or grab that desirable bargain.
A shopping experience with the girls wouldn’t be
complete without a visit to Mee [map]
on Bartlett Street. Mee is a unique experience for women
everywhere to enjoy some real pampering and turn their
shopping venture into a social occasion.
The beautiful shop offers everything from floaty dresses
and beaded slippers to lingerie, crystal jewellery, hair
accessories and French perfumes. As well as items of decadence
for the house and home.
But what makes Mee so different is the way in which you
shop. Enter the store and you might be given a glass
of champagne whilst you recline on a chaise lounge,
kick off your shoes and catch up on the latest gossip
with your friends. Mee puts the joy back into shopping.
