Evenings and weekends
Just a short drive from Great Oldbury you will find the market town of Stroud, which has earned itself a well-deserved reputation for its range of independent shops. Here you will find everything from fossils to fairies and vintage to vinyl, all set against the backdrop of the beautiful Five Valleys.
If you want to head further afield, Gloucester City Centre houses all the famous high street names, as well as a range of unique and fascinating specialist shops and boutiques, ideal for exploring and possibly finding something unexpected.
For a different shopping experience, why not head to Gloucester Quays designer outlet, with lots of designer names including LK Bennet, Calvin Klein, Phase Eight, Next and M&S.
