Shopping in Newbury
Discover Newbury town centre's unique blend of independent stores, national brands, and traditional markets
Newbury town centre offers a satisfying blend of old and new when it comes to shopping, with traditional shops like hardware store Barry Forkin Toomers (est. 1692) complemented by modern independents such as B The Lifestyle Shop and big brand names including Marks & Spencer and Waterstones. Newbury’s bi-weekly charter market offers fresh, locally sourced produce from friendly traders, and the monthly farmers market and regular artisan and vegan markets bring yet more delicious produce and unique products to the town.

The main shopping areas in Newbury include Parkway Shopping, Kennet Shopping, Northbrook Street, and Bartholomew Street, but remember to check out hidden gems in Weavers Walk, Inches Yard, The Arcade, Market Place, and Cheap Street too! And don’t forget to look up when you’re visiting the shops; many are housed in grand, historic buildings which magic you back to times gone by.

Please note some stores may be closed for now or have limited opening hours due to COVID restrictions; please check before you visit.
