This historic market hall is located in the centre of Bristol. We always visit every time we are in Bristol as it is full of interesting independent stalls that offer a chance of finding something different. Well worth a visit.

My latest visit here (it is a regular calling point on just about every trip to Bristol) was with one of my sons after a night sampling Bristol's nightlife. Lots going on in the lead-up to Xmas, plus the same very interesting food places.

I’ve always preferred the wonderfully varied semi-outside bit which sells an ever-changing array of great food from nearly every stall but the inside market is good to buy local art and wares too. The Bristol-specific merchandise and spicy sauce stalls make great presents. An integral...More

There was plenty of stalls here to browse, some were not cheap and i did no spot any bargains. It was worth spending some time inside to get away from the cold. It was well presented with the indoor market housed in a nice building.

I saw several small(ish) dogs on leads when I was there - the alleyways can be a bit narrow

The clothing stalls are the more unusual items - certainly not your run of the mill high street stuff. Don' remember seeing any shoe stalls, but there might very well be.
