Chipping Campden shopping is a wonderful experience.  Whatever your need, you will find what you want and you can take your time and really enjoy the experience when shopping in Chipping Campden.  Its historic High Street, adjacent Cambrook Court and Sheep Street provide a beautiful Cotswold setting for a wide range of shops and have been successful in one, you can always pop into a nearby café/tea-room to admire your purchase before going on to enjoy the next.

The town’s high street is lined with independent boutiques, gift shops, and art galleries. There are also several pubs, restaurants, and cafes to enjoy.  For those looking for more practical amenities, there are several grocery stores, a post office, a pharmacy, and a bank. There are also a few clothes shops, a hardware store, and a couple of places to get your car serviced. With all of these options available, Chipping Campden has something to offer everyone.

As with any shopping, nearby parking is a real bonus and The Square is right in the middle of the High Street.  If it is a quick in and out that you want, you just have to take a ticket from the machine and you can park there for 20 minutes free of charge and then a small fee for up to two hours.  There is no charge for on-street parking, but please be aware of the double yellow lines as we wouldn’t want you to get a parking ticket and ruin your day.

  • Independent shops
  • Gift shops
  • Food shops
  • Coffee shops such as the Campden Coffee Company

www.campdenmayfestivals.co.uk

Their offices are on the second floor of the Old Police Station.

Chipping Campden Music Festival was founded in 2002 by Charlie Bennett. Since that time it has grown into one of the UK’s most prestigious festivals featuring some of the world’s most acclaimed musicians, who all love performing in the wonderful setting of St James’ church.

In 2005 Internationally renowned pianist Paul Lewis became the festival’s president and he has performed here every year since then. The festival attracts visitors from Europe, America, Canada, Australia, & New Zealand, as well as from all over the UK.

Listening to performances in the beautiful surroundings and wonderful acoustics of St James’ Church has always been a great joy, but the fragility of a mid-pandemic world has, for so many, given live music experiences everywhere and even more intensely personal meaning than in pre-Covid days. We all hugely look forward to seeing you at St James’ Church in May for some unforgettable experiences.

Chipping Campden Literature Festival in partnership with Chipping Campden School was first staged in 2010 with some of the most popular voices in contemporary fiction.  Over the years the number of events has increased to produce a programme that, as well as a best-selling novelist, features recently published authors of widely reviewed non-fiction – history, politics, science, gender, race, theatre, music, religion, and the natural world – including literary memoir and biography.

Shopping For You and Your Home

chipping campden home

Chipping Campden is re-known for its Arts & Crafts movement which began in the late 1890’s when the Guild of Handicraft was brought to Chipping Campden by CR Ashbee the Architect.  He brought and settled 100 or so craftsmen as builders, stonemasons, carpenters & cabinet makers, blacksmiths, silversmiths and printers, etc. and their families from the east end of London to a simpler and healthier life here in Chipping Campden. Many of them are set up in and around the Silk Mill on Sheep Street.

 Harts Silversmiths

They can still be found working on the 2nd floor, in the original surroundings and probably using most of the original tools and drawings.  They are known throughout the world for producing the finest silverware, especially in the ecclesiastical style, so if you want the very finest of chalice or drinking cups, then they are well worth a visit.

They share their suppliers’ passion for quality and seasonality, supporting responsible, sustainable farming and fishing methods while keeping food miles to an absolute minimum.  They have hand-picked the very best farmers, growers and producers from across the Cotswolds.

From rare-breed meat to the freshest seasonal vegetables, artisan cheeses to stone-baked bread, sublime charcuterie to hand-baked cakes, amazing oils and vinegar and perfect pies and pastries, the shelves are full of amazing deli goods.

Maylam’s Delicatessen

Continue up the High Street towards the Church and duck down through the door into Maylam’s Delicatessen for a whole selection of wonderful tastes.

Tokes

www.tokesfoodanddrink.co.uk

Up the steps and more or less straight across the High Street to a former bakery and what is now Toke’s, an independent food & wine retailer whose history can be traced back a long way indeed!

They offer a friendly, off-beat antidote to the gentrified rural food hall, with prices to match. No fancy packaging, no crispy uniforms, just pure unadulterated taste, fun and funky music.

Their stock of wine is awesome and varies from everyday drinkers to that special fine and rare bottle, as well as fizz for every occasion.   You can find out a lot more about them all from their regular events throughout the year too, where they meet with suppliers and vineyard owners, both local and from the other side of the globe.

The offered product is from the Cotswold Chocolate Company based in Stow on the Wold where Heidi and Tony have been making handmade artisan chocolates since 2011.

Little Oak Vineyard

www.littleoakvineyard.com

Continue up the High Street, turn right into Cider Mill Lane and then left at the church after about a mile and with the railway bridge just in sight in the distance, you will find Little Oak Vineyard on your left.

You can have a really fun and informative tour of this small vineyard that produces and offers exceptional English wine.  You may have got to have lunch too and maybe a cheeky brandy to boot. You are missing a treat if you don’t visit.

At Little Oak Vineyard they aim to produce wine of the highest possible quality (read that as the nicest possible to drink!), that is irrespective of how much hard work it takes.  They will not compromise quality to save a little on the cost of production and feel the vineyard’s superb wine justifies such a ruthless attitude.

If they wanted to compromise then they would have chosen grape varieties that are easier to grow and cultivate in British climates. The main grape they grow (Siegerrebe) produces a unique and very special wine (the grapes are very different when grown in other climates), the wine produced by these grapes in Britain is simply superb.

The principal grape (Seyval Blanc) they use for their sparkling wine is more difficult to grow than the usual varieties used to produce sparkling wines.  Whilst the sparkling wine it produces is outstanding, they have gone a step further and blended it with a small amount of their Siegerrebe grapes to produce a fantastic sparkling wine!
