Shopping

The Guest House is situated approximately half a mile from the City Centre where you will find the pedestrianised High Street with all the main national stores. Just off High Street is the modern Crowngate shopping centre. But the City is also well known for its many small individual outlets which sell a variety of goods not found in the High Street. If small shops appeal to you, be sure to explore Reindeer Court, the Hopmarket and Friar Street during your stay.

Should you want to explore the shops further afield why not try Birmingham or Great Malvern?
