Shopping in Oxfordshire is of the highest variety and has something for everyone.

At this festive time of the year be sure to visit the famous Oxford Covered Market and be prepared to step back in time as you see the Christmas trees and mistletoe together with turkeys ready to be bought for that all important Christmas dinner with friends and family. Take time to visit all the different shops and colourful stalls and perhaps dream a little of Christmases past as you gaze into the decorated shop windows and soak up a true market atmosphere. As you meander along the many rows of shops don’t forget to stop for a cup of warming soup or a mug of hot chocolate, there are plenty of warm places to sit and go through those all important shopping lists ticking off a present bought here and there.

Outside the market is an array of shops waiting for you along both the main streets and in the shopping arcades such as the Clarendon Centre and the Westgate Centre which are scattered here and there adding to the charm of Oxford making it a truly shoppers paradise and take time to visit the Templars Square shopping centre at Cowley too.
