Go vintage in Bath

With its striking Georgian architecture and varied history the city of Bath has always attracted those with a passion for the nostalgic, and it’s home to a regular vintage and antiques market that’s perfect for lovers of all things old fashioned.

If you find yourself staying in a Bath bed and breakfast on either the first or the last Sunday of the month head to Green Park Station and wile away a morning enjoying all kinds of vintage bargains. The market includes stalls selling retro fashion, home ware, jewellery, kitchen accessories, sculptures, clocks, art and much more. The market makes for a great place for picking up bargains or unique gifts for those back home, and if you feel like avoiding the larger chain stores after all that Christmas shopping you’ll be in your element.

The venue’s undercover so it doesn’t matter if it happens to be an umbrella day – the market will go ahead, and hundreds visit the historic site twice every month to enjoy those purchases that they just won’t find anywhere else. The vintage clothing is one of the market’s biggest attractions, and if you’re stuck for something different to do during a break in Bath, bear it in mind.
