Whether you’re looking for amazing art, special skincare or the best new fashion before everyone else, you’ll find it here. Wander through sandstone streets find it all – but first, here are a few suggestions to start you on your shopping journey.

ART TO ADOPT | ATTY GALLERY

ATTY Gallery is not your ordinary gallery, and digital artist Atty (real name Graham Atwell) is not your ordinary artist. Specialising in animals, Atty spends around 150 to 250 hours on each intricate new creation. On a simple, plain background, the vibrant animals show their personalities. When the artwork is finished, Atty names each animal and rather than selling the piece, he prefers to have it ‘adopted’ by its new owners. This little gallery has a cult following worldwide, with collectors in over 40 countries including celebrities, musicians and sports stars. Join the ranks and take home your very own Atty to keep.
