SHOPPING IN TETBURY
Tetbury is known for its wonderful array of antiques, clothes and gift shops. These shops are our particular favourites and worth a visit on your next trip to Tetbury. From Scentiments whose windows are filled with seasonal flowers, to Vinotopia and its fine selection of European and New World Wines, to the two shops that sit at each end of the interiors spectrum - Brownrigg and Treacle George. What they have in common is their owners' unerring good taste and creative flair.
