Shopping in Wells

Locally made, responsibly sourced,lovingly sold.

Wells-next-the-Sea is a quaint seaside town, where you can enjoy boutique shopping and then feast on fish and chips overlooking the quay.

We love Staithe Street, which is lined with local shops including Bringing the Outside In, Nomad and the Bowerbird, Arthur Howell’s Butchers, Bakery and Fishmongers. You’re sure to adore the outstanding Country Garden greengrocers bursting to the seams with locally-grown produce, and a potter around the second-hand bookshop, Crabpot Books, is always a fine way to while away an hour (or two). If the mood takes you, you can have some fun in the small amusements on the quay – ice cream in hand – or pick yourself a stick of rock and a bag of penny sweets in one of the sweet shops. The town is also home to many excellent pubs, restaurants and cafés, as well as a handy Co-op.
