    Shop Hungerford – variety, quality and celebrity

    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."

    Just stroll around the town, perhaps along the High Street or through Bridge and into Charnham Street and you will know that there is nowhere quite like Hungerford. 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!

The couple of hundred yards between the A4 and the bridge over the Kennet and Avon Canal are a shopping heaven, offering a horizontal department store of specialist independent retailers whose range and quality of products are the perfect response to an increasingly anodyne British high street.
