Milsom Street was the fashionable shopping street in Bath: “Do you know I saw the prettiest hat you can imagine in a shop window in Milsom Street just now,” enthuses a friend of Catherine Morland, Jane Austen's heroine in 'Northanger Abbey'. Today Milsom St. still has many smart shops & unique boutiques. The painted wooden shop fronts in Bath have not changed much over the years and adds a unique charm to your shopping trip to Bath. Below we have added a few recommended shops to visit in Bath.

Everyone knows an old guys that rules! Old Guys Rule is a celebration of a new breed of guy who has incredible energy and passion for life, wisdom gained from years of experience and the time to spend doing the activities they enjoy. With a wide range of clothing and accessories Old Guys Rule provides the perfect gift to celebrate these hero's with a touch of tongue in cheek humour. The roots of the Old Guys Rule brand go back to California when local surf legend Don Craig first asked a friend to make an 'Old Guys Rule' bumper sticker to honour his 75 year old surfing dad Doug! Don set about building a brand that commemorated old guys from all walks of life reflecting their hobbies and passions through a unique range of t-shirts, clothing and accessories. Old Guys Rule can be purchased in one of our own branded stores, throughout the UK in a number of independent lifestyle clothing stores or online at oldguysruleuk.co.uk
