Shop in style in Bath’s historic Milsom Street

A shopping break in a new city can often pose that age-old dilemma to the shopper who likes a bit of everything…do you head to the pretty, older area of the town centre and enjoy the independent shops and quirky bargains, or do you make the most of the big names while you’re there and stick to the main centre.

There’s no need to waste valuable browsing time pondering this decision during a shopping break in Bath, just head to Milson Street and enjoy the best of both (shopping) worlds. This historic street right in the centre of the city is lined with charming buildings that give it an elegant appearance, and they house everything from old books shops to the newest chains.

You’ll find House of Fraser, The Gap, Banks and most of the leading names in fashion alongside those little shops that catch your eye and mean finding something nobody back home will have. Whether take a look up at the buildings as you wander and you’ll often see what they were once used for and the date they were built. Milsom Street sits right in the heart of the city making it ideal for a spot of shopping during your stay in a B and B in Bath.
