Clifton shopping quarter in Bristol

Forget the antidote to bright lights of tacky malls and large retail parks, try doing your shopping in Bristol’s Clifton shopping quarter, a haven of beautiful historical buildings.

The Georgian grandeur of the terraces and crescents of Clifton attracts those in search of that extra special gift, or those hoping to find a unique item for their own home.

The area plays host to many unusual and independent shops selling jewellery, art, wine, furniture and fashion. There’s also a number of galleries, boutiques and antique dealers, where you can pick up crafts made by local artists. In addition, there are plenty of refreshment stops available for when you run out of steam.

Amongst the Georgian splendour you’ll also find a small piece of Victoriana. The Clifton Arcade [map] on Boyce Avenue is a galleried arcade that has a number of small gift and fashion shops. If you’re looking for jewellery you’ll find a good range of unusual silver items here, and there’s also the delightful Primrose Café [map], which is the perfect place to get a sandwich and watch the world go by.

Close to Clifton is Whiteladies Road [map], a bustling street which extends from the RWA Gallery to the Downs scenic parkland. Here you’ll find a wide variety of independent and national shops selling clothes, gifts, antiques, books, home furnishings and fine foods. Again, you’ll be able to relax in one of the many coffee shops or have a glass of wine in one of the traditional little pubs located here.

If you find yourself hankering after some of the bigger high street names there’s always the Clifton Down Shopping Centre. The refurbished centre is located halfway along Whiteladies Road. There are well known shops including Sainsbury's, Boots, WH Smith, Orange, and a number of independent shops, including Potters [map], with an interesting range of pottery by local artists. There’s also the convenience of a car parking facility here.
