Independent Shops

Strolling through the town you will find a wide range of shops and galleries. From traditional independent butchers, bakers and greengrocers to shops and boutiques offering an array of arts, crafts, homeware, jewellery and clothes.

We also highly recommend that when visiting Tankerton you take some time out to enjoy the shops, restaurants, cafes and bars situated just a short walk from the beach and slopes.
