Several words come to mind when describing the shopping experience in the World Heritage City of Bristol; expansive, convenient, diverse, historical but the main one is CHOICE!
Bristol is a shoppers dream with something for every type of shopper, browsers who enjoy rummaging through second hand stores or picking up unusual trinkets, fresh food, independent store followers or lovers of large precincts or malls housing the UK’s largest chains and outlets all under one roof.
The city is divided into several shopping areas so is easy to decide the type of shopping experience you are looking for.
Broadmead: The largest shopping area in the City. Its pedestrianised streets house 300 stores including major retailers and outlets along with banks, cafes and restaurants. A multi-storey car park means access is easy
Cabot Circus: The latest shopping development situated alongside Broadmead. The area houses 125 shops including 15 major retail chains and a 2600 space car park makes shopping a hassle free experience.

The Mall at Cribbs Causeway: Situated to the North of the city and comprises a covered, 2 level shopping centre with 135 shops, again including some of the biggest high street names. Parking is simple with over 2000 spaces. A good time to visit is during Bristol fashion week which is held twice a year and a visit to “Winter Wonderland” and the Christmas market is a must during the festive season.

For something a bit different Clifton Village and Park Street are for you. Filled with boutiques, unusual clothes and trinkets, this area just outside the City centre, is a joy. Every Wednesday a farmers market is held on Corn Street or in the Old City, St Nicholas Market which has everything from 2nd hand shops to fresh produce.
