Whether you’re on the hunt for a gift, the perfect souvenir or even a treat for a four-legged friend, Padstow has a shop for you.  Aside from a number of high-street brands, Padstow also boasts a collection of vibrant independent shops to bring something unique to your wardrobe or home!

The art of Cornwall

Looking for a piece of distinctive Cornwall-inspired art to liven up your home?  Look no further than the art galleries of Padstow: The Drang possesses a range of pieces by both world famous Artists and less-known Artists available for browsing; The Driftwood has an impressive collection of stunning artwork, glass and jewellery; and Quay Art has a number of paintings, sculptures and ceramics, created by local and international Artists. All three are located in and around the Padstow harbour, and are the perfect place to find a spectacular piece of Cornish art to take home with you.

Picks for the peckish

Aside from its amazing art, Padstow is famously home to a variety of top-notch food and drink retailers, each offering something unique.  BinTwo has a selection of the most luxurious champagnes to equally excellent wines that won’t break the bank, the team has got you covered. To accompany your drink, why not partake in one of BinTwo’s light lunches, such as their famous lobster roll (true to the Maine recipe!), or a delectable charcuterie board?  Bin Two also supply local gins, vodkas and wines from our renowned vineyards such as Trevibban Mill and Camel Valley.  17 Duke Street stocks a wide selection of Champagne, wines, Padstow Gin®, charcuterie, coffee and cakes. Stay in and let the experienced team serve you scrumptious, premium cocktails or recommend the best bottles for you to take away.

Pamper your pets

Indulge your four-legged friends at Slicker’s Doghouse which is adjacent to the harbour.  Here you will find quality dog coats, collars, harnesses and leads, toys, accessories and much more to keep your pet happy, cool and hydrated in the Cornish sun (or rain!).  The Paws in Padstow dog boutique (located just outside of Padstow, at the Trevisker Garden Centre) has an equally impressive range of products, with top quality dog beds, foods and toys, in addition to doggy-related artworks by Simon Clarke and ‘Sue’. Whilst at Trevisker, why not browse their garden centre and pick up a few colourful plants.
