Newbury offers a great environment for shopping with lots of town centre parking, a pedestrainised high street and lots of cafes and restaurants. The retail offer is a good mix of well known high street names and local independents, including the award winning Camp Hopson department store. In October 2011 the town became an even more attractive shopping destination with the opening of Parkway. This is an open street development in the heart of the town which will feature more than 50 shops and kiosks that will turn Newbury into one of the best places to shop in central southern England.
Throughout the area the towns and villages offer a wide variety of shopping opportunities including antiques, boutiques, village stores and some great farm shops.
Hungerford is well known as centre for antiques with over ten antique shops, three antique centres and regular antique fair in the Town Hall.
With Farmer's Markets, Community Markets and General Markets happening in towns and villages across the district you can easily find the best local produce the area has to offer.
With a number of farmer's markets and farm shops throughout the area it is easy to buy great local produce. Pubs in the area serve locally brewed beer from the West Berkshire Brewery at Yattendon or Butts Brewery in Great Shefford.
Parkway is a open street, mixed use, development opening in October 2011 in the heart of Newbury.
