Historic buildings are beautiful, fabulous shops and restaurants - but pricey but definitely worth a visit.

A great street for shopping, both chain and independents, together with lots of good restaurants to choose from. The Park and Ride Bus stops here every 15 minutes and Milsom Street leads to all the other attractions in Bath. This to me is the centre from which to start and end your visit.

Definitely worth the visit even if its only for window shopping. I am never one for shopping. I do it only to keep my partner happy. I must say I really enjoyed our visit to Milsom street. Lots of history here. Lots of fantastic historical buildings blended beautifully with modern window displays. Good variety of shopping, something for every one.... More

I enjoyed walking up and down Milsom Street, peering into shop windows and occasionally entering a shop to browse. It is a bustling street lined with shops and restaurants on both sides. At the top, I even discovered a restaurant that sounded appetizing and did not disappoint.

Milsom Street is another beautiful street in Bath. There are Grade I listed buildings which house shops, offices, eating places and banks. There are lovely small boutique type shops which are very welcoming - and to browse around. I saw a souvenir shop too. It forms a T junction with George Street at one end. At the other end it...

A nice little cafe in a lovely bookshop, what more can you ask for! The place was warm and cosy and a nice place to sit and watch the world go by, (try to get a window seat). Tea and cakes were very good.

This street is totally lined with boutique shops, souvenir shops and a plethora of other choices. Polly's is on this street and it is world famous. We had high tea in their shop.

I have visited Milsom Street many times and used to look forward to browsing really good quality shops as we don't have any where I live. But, sadly, like so many city centres, it is not what it was.

Thank Iverette
