Colne high street.

Shopping in Colne is all about the independent scene. One continuous road, as well as side streets to explore, jam-packed with local, independent shops, cafes and restaurants. Colne has plentiful FREE parking (but please remember to use your parking disc or pick one up from a local shop or Colne Town Hall).

Colne still has all those unique services and shops that you won’t find on many high streets – from key cutting and shoe repairs, musical instruments, to a local bookstore, tobacconist and old fashioned sweet shop. Colne’s steep curves and unique landscape help define an area that has a very distinct feel and is a shopping hub for locals from Colne

and its surrounding areas, as well as many visitors.

As you continue to down Albert Road and venture off into the side streets, you will find even more independent businesses selling everything for house and home, bridal wear, a florist, party shop, clothing, upholstery and soft furnishings and much more. It might be a longer stretch of the town but all within walking distance. It’s perfect to mooch from shop to shop and you can easily spend an afternoon, if not a whole day here.

You’ll be sure to receive a warm welcome from shop owners and the locals, with a real friendly spirit and friendly atmosphere throughout the town.
