Shopping in Stony Stratford
The shops in Stony Stratford are a delightful mix of retailers, both old and new. Some of the businesses have been in existence for hundreds of years and you can still see the original shop fittings. Here you will discover little shops and retailers not found in the average high street.
Don't forget to look above the shop fronts to appreciate the rich architectural history of the town. Parking is free and you can download a map of Stony Stratford's car parks.
The shops extend along Wolverton Road and into the historic Market Square. A visit to the town's small arcades: Swinfen's Yard, Stratford Arcade and Timor Court will reveal yet more small shops.
For gift shopping Stony Stratford has a great deal to offer and you'll be spoilt for choice when you come to order morning coffee or pick up a lunchtime sandwich from one of the many teashops, pubs, hotels and snack bars. There's a small market in Timor Court each Saturday and a farmers' market in the Market Square once a month.
Stony Stratford Business Association organises the famous Christmas lights display during December, the hanging baskets which adorn the centre of town during the summer and bunting to highlight the many special events and festivals which take place here during the year.
