    Hungerford is a shopper's dream and a celebrity-spotter's happy hunting ground. No matter what your taste or budget you can, as Channel 4's Jon Snow puts it: "get everything you want here."

It's unmistakeable array of independent and specialist shops offer the resident and the visitor alike an amazing choice of retailers offering everything from "a pair of socks to a pair of pliers" as Jon Snow says.

    And there's so much choice – food, fashion and furnishings, crafts and artisan products plus some superb jewellery all combine to make Hungerford the shopping gem which attracts the stars....and royalty sometimes too!
