17 shops! A must visit in Bristol.
Clifton Arcade in Bristol is a Victorian Shopping Arcade located on Boyces Avenue in Clifton. Originally opened back in 1878 the arcade has been fully restored and is a delight to visit with its eclectic range of shops.
There are 19 shops that are open daily offering up a vast range from quality gifts, antiques and jewellery through to vintage and hand crafted clothing. These are products you are unlikely to find on the High Street and it really is a must visit if you are out and about shopping in Bristol. The Primrose Cafe is also there to help you refuel with fresh, home cooked food, cakes, teas, juices and coffees.
The shops include:
The Primrose Cafe : fill yourselves up with their extensive menu of hot and cold dishes and wonderful cakes!
Unit A - Available to let.
Unit A1 - Village : a great selection of gift and homewards, and a huge selection of greeting cards. They also stock pick ‘n’ mix fairy lights where you can make your own combination of coloured spherical shades.

10 - Yellow Duck Interiors : is a contemporary bathroom showroom, with a variety of sleek, modern finishes.
11 - Zip Pin Alterations : is an ideal addition to the arcade, which has two vintage clothing shops; how better to make the best of those vintage purchases than with some alterations to perfect the fit?
12 - Montys of Clifton : is a furniture shop with a fab selection of mirrors and storage items. I love the natural wood finishes, and the crates with text.
13 - Hermione Harbutt : creates ethereal tiaras and headpieces using gemstones, pearls and crystals. The shop is gorgeous in its simplicity, allowing Hermione’s work to be the star of the show. It’s definitely very easy to lose a long time marveling at the incredible craftsmanship at this beautiful shop, which has a real gallery feel.
14 - Pomegranate Clothing : stocks floaty clothes ideal for layering. There’s lots of silk and linen clothing from the UK and Europe, and also a variety of leather handbags, and accessories. The variety of textures and fabrics means that you can create a really unique look by shopping here.
15 - Marmalade House : everything you need to upcycle and reinvigorate furniture. They stock Annie Sloan paint, which has somewhat of a cult following at the moment, and fabrics and soft furnishings. I always feel inspired by this shop and leave feeling full of ideas!
