Berkshire shopping

Shopping in Berkshire is a real treat. In Windsor, for upmarket fashion, head for Windsor Royal Station where many big fashion names can be found here, including Hobbs, Jigsaw and Jo Malone. Art lovers will be intrigued by Artique – an art gallery with a consultancy service.

Havana House Cigar Shop situated in the Windsor Royal Station is a rare find – a traditional tobacconist on the site of the old station master’s office built in 1897 and still features some of the original furnishings. From Windsor Royal Station, steps lead down to Windsor Yards, a pedestrian-friendly collection of good high-street stores including Daniels of Windsor department store, here you’ll also find independent family-run jewellers Anthony Paul, The White Company, Zara and Cotswold Outdoor. Asides from the school, Eton is renowned for its art and antique shops. Highlights include contemporary art at the Barker Gallery; the wonderfully dusty Eton Antique Bookshop; and the Eton College gift shop, which is perfect for those with a hankering to pass themselves off as a sporty Old Etonian, with T-shirts, caps, boaters and obligatory teddy bears and tea towels.
