Georgian architecture and modern shopping on Bristol's edge

Clifton, Bristol

Stroll through one of England's finest commercial districts, and pick up a local treat.


Evading the modern trend for vast, soulless chasms in which to shop, Bristol's most trendy quarter resides in the historic suburb of Clifton, where visitors can shop ‘til they drop among the untouched Georgian beauty of the south west.

Rows of independent stores lay in wait for intrepid shoppers, offering everything from clothes and jewellery to food and crafts. Pick up a handmade dress, some local honey and top it off with a pint at one of the area's fine pubs and restaurants. What's more, if you need a pick-me-up after picking up some bargains, Brunel's famous Clifton Suspension Bridge is just round the corner. Georgian, Victorian and 21st century – all in one place.
