If you are in Bordeaux to shop this is a good place to start. Pretty much everything you might want (Gallerie Lafayette, fnac, Apple, Lego etc) is here. Seemingly the only thing missing is a supermarket but there are plenty of places to eat in the area for every price range and cuisine.

Basically just a long shopping street in the centre of Bordeaux. Right next to the iconic Opera House. Usual High Street shops are there but lots of side streets to explore which leads to restaurants pubs bistros.

The shopping strip Rue Ste Cathines is worth a visit even if you don't like to shop. It has also sorts of shops and historical landmarks along the way.

Very long street which when busy looks like a marathon run! However many of the shops are all the usual brands found anywhere these days. There are other shopping areas and streets nearby far quieter that have more individual shops with better service. Did look pretty with the decorations just before Christmas though!

Supposedly the longest pedestrian shopping street in Europe. May be, unfortunately the stores are unimpressive succumbing to the globalization trend where international chain stores take over every thing. Walk along the Gironde, you'll enjoy it more.

The Rue Ste Catherine is a bustling shopping delight for accifciandos of fashion. All the high end shops plus all the well known high street brands are here too. There are lots of small individual boutiques and lots of side streets to meander down. Really lovely and lots of places to eat or just stop and have a glass of... More

This very lengthy street has shops to apparel to everyone. From ythe international brands such as a mango and Zara to quirky, independent retailers. As well as fashion for every taste and style there area number of very good kitchenware/ cook shops, several excellent food shops and some unusual gift shops. Not to be missed.
