Love global brands and sparkling new shopping malls?
Quirky independents? Or brilliant bargains? Why choose?
Oxford has them all. Discover the city through its shops.

Shops. Cinema.
Gourmet restaurants.

As if 800,000 square feet of big name stores was not enough.
Oxford's Westgate also has a cinema, restaurants and roof-top views.
All on the site of the Mediaeval West Gate of the city.

Frocks.
And gowns.

Just down the street, find England's oldest tailor.
Purveyor of gowns to scholars and robes to Royalty, for centuries.
And if you're not a Professor, nor Prince/Princess, there's designer wear too.

Some silver perhaps?
Or gold?

Tucked away behind a tiny storefront, discover Payne & Son.
Two centuries old. You might be served by the Founder's descendant.
One of many historical delights you'll discover on this tour.

Toad & Tonic anyone?


Why not try a bottle of Toad gin?
Distilled in the city, from a blend of ancient local grains.
It's the first gin to be made in Oxford's thousand year history.

Thoughtful gifts.
Mementoes. And more.

How about taking home your own wax seal?
Or a reader's lamp from the world-famous Bodleian library perhaps?
The story of Oxford comes alive through its fascinating shops.

Tea merchants. 
Cake artists. Caf├ęs.

Don't miss the Covered Market. Oxford's food hall since 1774.
Fine provisions. Exquisite teas. And the oldest ham in the world!
Bag a bottle of Oxford Sauce (perfect with an Oxford sausage).

Simple, beautiful objects.


Discover unexpected beauty in a broom, a mop or a pan!
The finest traditional household tools in a bewitching museum-like store. 
Set in the ancient heart of the University.

More? There's more?
