Artisan Quarter Antiques Hunting Walk, Bath

Artisan Quarter Antiques Hunting Walk (Self Guided), Bath

If you’re looking for the perfect antique to complete your home or want to dress up in some beautiful vintage clothes, go to the Artisan Quarter. It is a treasure trove of gems. Since the 1960s, the London Road area and Walcot Village have held the title of Bath's Artisan Quarter, and they are home to a fabulous and eclectic collection of independent shops.

Delve into their shelves for reclaimed antiques and furniture, ceramic pieces and curios from earlier decades and centuries. The Old Bank Antiques Center is a must for antique lovers. This is the largest antiques retailer in Bath and there are several dealers here in more than 20 rooms.

Continue your shopping expedition on Pulteney Bridge, an 18th-century Palladian style bridge with shops on both sides. It extends for 45 meters across the River Avon and is one of the most photographed places in the city. Hunt for even more collectables on Bartlett Street, where you'll find lots of knowledgeable dealers and a large variety of antiques. Shop for coins, cabinets, medals, ephemera, clocks, watches, furniture, toys, prints, rugs, metal-ware, lace and much more. Come back to the Artisan Quarter on Saturdays to search for bargains in the flea market.
