Shopping in Bristol

The huge selection of stores and variety of brands in Bristol make it the shopping capital of the South West

Allow us to show you where to find it.

Harvey Nichols Fashion in Bristol Cathedral In the city centre, Bristol Shopping Quarter is home to Cabot Circus, Quakers Friars, The Galleries, Broadmead and St James Arcade, which together have over 500 stores. With two covered shopping centres, easy access and plenty of parking, Bristol's city centre is where you will find your favourite high street names and big brand fashions as well as over 80 unique independent stores, plus the South West's only Harvey Nichols and many cafés and restaurants. Watch a video about Bristol Shopping Quarter here.

Clifton Village is one classy part of town and is the place to be for small boutiques, antiques shops and cafes. Clifton Village Arcade Shopping CREDIT Morgane Bigault

Park Street is steep. Not in price. In slope. Don't let that stop you from discovering the trendiest independent clothes and curios shops in the city.

Flying the flag for the indie spirit as well, is Gloucester Road, Europe’s longest street of independent shops. Locals love it for its organic foods, clothes and antiques. And the street art.

Or for an authentic Bristol shopping experience, Coldharbour Road in Redland is a small shopping area filled with almost all independent shops, selling everything from flowers, furnitures, jewellery, cameras, guitars, bread and cakes and fancy dress! 

Tyntesfield Food Market_credit-NTPL,-David-LevensonBristol has three all-year markets (and some seasonal ones too) within a short walk from the city centre where you can buy local produce from South Gloucestershire and Somerset and exotic products from around the world.

Dating back to the 1600s, the Christmas Steps arts quarter is a cobbled haven of quirk. Ceramics, vintage clothes and a spot of local cider will set you right whether you're headed up or down them.

Just off the M4/M5 interchange is The Mall at Cribbs Causeway. This offers the ultimate high street experience under one roof. The two-storey building boasts over 500 brands, 135 stores and is open till late, ideal for long shopping sprees.

Gifts Cards - Gift cards can be purchased to spend across the city including the Cabot Circus Gift Card and the Your Street Gift Card to spend at a huge selection of independent shops across Bristol.
