    Some friends and I are heading to Bristol in a few weeks for a shopping trip, We're pretty much gonna stay in the Cabot Circus area (although we may have a lil' walk to Jack Wills possibly).

    I'm not taking an awful amount of money (about £40) so I was wondering about what good not fairly expensive shops in Cabot Circus should be recommended which are different to your normal high street would offer. Thanks guys

    £40 in cabot circus, you'll go into urban outfitters and spend that on a t-shirt.
    If you're heading to bristol, why not try the shops on park street, whiteladies or gloucester road?

    £40 isnt gonna get you very far anywhere except the lower end shops in broadmead such as primark, h&m etc.
    The 'middle-range' shops such as river island, republic etc you'll only get a coat for that, maybe a few tops, two pairs of jeans etc.

    Not all of cabot circus is expensive, the shops i mentioned above arent, nor are topshop and things like that, you'll just have to look around.

    £40 to Cabots Circus? good luck! Believe you me, you really won't get far with that! Like someone else said, it's very expensive shops, which require a good chunk of ££££ to shop with.

    Not really.
    A few are, but half of the clothes shops are normal high street ones.
    Republic, monsoon, river island, topshop, h&m, next etc etc

    £40 just isnt gonna get you a real 'shopping trip' anywhere except primark.

    At least on G.Road you have the pick of 2nd hand shops, the amazing retro shop, cafes and a one or two proper clothing shops too.

    I love Glozzy road

    I was in Cabots on Sat, to exchange a pair of boots I ordered online, as the store was easiest to return them to. Those boots were £40 for a decent leather pair. IF you want cheap rubbish = primark/peacocks is the place to go where £40 can buy your entire family a new wardrobe!! Although you say the majority of stores are high street, a lot of them still req. a good chunk of money to get a proper shopping trip! You wouldn't be able to get a good pair of, say, trousers/jeans, top, jacket, shoes for £40??!! . .

    That's my opinion.

    You'd be much better off shopping on Park Street - some of the shops there are really unique and cute!

    £40 in Jack Wills? Doesn't that get you about 1/2 a pair of socks? Listen to harrietta, mate! Happy shopping
