    Tourist Information Centre

    The tourist information Centre is a good place to start. Friendly service and good advise. You'll need a map to get around and they will be able to find you lodgings should you need it.

    What to buy: I know cheap souvineers are tacky but when you have a long list of gifts to buy it sometimes is the best alternative.

    The world's greatest shop?!

    Okay, I love Cadbury chocolate--I mean, I LOVE it. :) So what better store in the world could there possibly be for a girl like me?

    The full line of Cadbury candy and chocolate is here, along with an ice cream/drink bar, made to order. Sigh....

    What to pay: Average Cadbury prices, as far as I could tell.

    Bath

    The whole market of Bath is very special. On our first visit we were so impressed that there were more shops than in Bristol... well at least more interesting to go and visit. Full of tourists but not overcrowded all the shops provide you with the cosiness that a small town can.
    Bath's market is very special as you can see from the picture!! all this small shops and alleys are so exiting for me!!

    What to buy: You can buy from a needle to the best designer dress that you have seen on the months magazine.

    What to pay: Prices vary.. from the most cheap piece of garment to the most expensive car!

    Mall area: Near the Railway Station

    Shopping area

    When we got off the bus, we tried to find something to eat in the mall by the bus station. Eventually ended up at McDonalds because we were really hungry, and didn't want to look for a restaurant any more. There were all kinds of shops in this area.

    Guild Hall: Off to Market

    by greebo Written Oct 3, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Guild Hall is an indoor market and very interesting to wander around and the market is housed in a beautiful building. The market has been established since 1284.

    What to buy: For fresh produce the Guild Hall is recommended as it has a market selling speciality teas, wild boar pate, fresh fruit and veg. Also craft stalls, leather goods, books and pet stalls are also on sale.

    What to pay: Ranging from the cheap to the expensive depending on what is purchased i.e. speciality foods may be more expensive but some of the crafts are on the cheaper side.
