Arts, crafts and such
  • Body and Bangle are still going, they've moved to oppisite the co-op (which is changing to Marks and Spencers), Always the best place for strange but true items.
  • Of course there is the new Witney Museum (fairly new) on the High Street opposite the plough which often has local art or crafts on show along with some history of the place but for shopping for unusual gifts and handcrafted goods you can't beat a new shop in Corn St opposite Stokes bakery. (The name of which escapes me but the window of which attracts!)
  • From art galleries to tools/clothes sales etc - normally found in the above Corn Exchange building, also used for the cinema mentioned above.
  • I like Merchant Adventurer in Wesley walk (back of Waitrose car park area of shops).
  • Check out 'Earth Keepers' in Corn Street if you like beautiful crystals and polished stones.
  • The TEDDY BEAR shop in High Street has wide acclaim, and was featured in a main newspaper article.
  • Shilbrook Stationery. Good Art equipment.
  • The Corn Exchange.
  • Witney & District Museum has an excellent temporary exhibition gallery, with a changing programme of events throughout the season
