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, tabacconist and old fashion 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 the surrounding areas who go about their daily lives grabbing fresh fruit and veg from the greengrocers, stopping at the local butchers, getting a haircut at the local barber and being pulled in by the smells of freshly cooked Artisan bread from Deerstones Bakery.
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, bridalwear, 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.
