Something for all, when a little retail therapy is in order!

Whether you are looking for boutiques or national brands, designer names, art and crafts, antiques or a traditional market, you won’t be disappointed.

For High Street and designer names, from Laura Ashley, Next to TKmax and Matalan – head to Grantham, where there is a wide and varied shopping offer that is easily accessible without the hustle and bustle of a city shopping centre. With a multi-screen cinema, vibrant arts centre, central riverside walks and parks, train station, bus station and plenty of parking, a vast array of restaurants and cafes, together with a noticeable rich history, it’s happy place to shop. Grantham hosts a large Saturday street market and one of East Midlands’ largest department stores Downtown Superstore and Garden centre is on the outskirts.

For that special shopping trip with a wealth of boutiques and cafes, surrounded by Georgian splendour then Stamford is the place to be. The traditional Friday Street market attracts crowds from a wide area. This historic market town is bursting with character, with regular events and festivals on the town meadows. With plenty of parking, train and bus station, the town centre also boasts an arts centre and a heritage room within the library, helping you to soak up some culture whilst you shop. Set back from the pedestrianised High Street are many side streets packed with speciality shops, boutiques, antique shops, gift and book shops.

Bourne and The Deepings both have a wide choice of independent shops, artisan food retailers and award winning eateries, including a renowned Craft and Antiques Centre at Market Deeping.

Out of town there are popular large garden centres with café at Belton near Grantham and Waterside at Baston, as well as some excellent smaller gardening retailers.
The Engine Yard at Belvoir Castle provides an intriguing mix of small retail outlets, garden centre and restaurant.
