Shopping in Bristol

Bristol’s renowned for its rebellious streak – so no surprises that every shopping style is well catered for here. From chic Clifton boutiques and big brands to indie labels and packaging-free shops, it’s all here.

Big brands and high street names

Looking for all the big brands under one roof? Head to Cabot Circus in town or Cribbs Causeway by bus.

Independent and unique

Bristol’s shops are as independent and unique as its people. Gloucester Road is home to one of the longest stretches of independent shops in the UK. You’ll find everything from fruit and veg to local artwork. It’s a great place to spot vintage and charity shop gems too. You’ll also find farmers' markets and local, sustainable food shops dotted all over the city.

Boutiques and shopping with a view

There’s beautiful architecture and high-end boutiques nestled among the delis and delights of Clifton. Done with retail therapy? Head up to the Observatory for a drink. It’s a great spot to watch the hot air balloons sail over Brunel’s Suspension Bridge.
