Paxton and Whitfield


A light, bright shop with a stunning window and views towards Queen Square, this shop is undoubtedly one of the experiences that should be incorporated into any trip to Bath. Situated in one of the charming buildings of the city centre, what the shop lacks in floor space it makes up for in abundant cheese and a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm from the team. A real jewel of a shop that leads its customers in their quest for the ideal cheese with humour and passion and a good deal of tasting.

As Winston Churchill once observed, "a gentleman only buys his cheese at Paxton and Whitfield".

In Paxton's third century of trading, the company hopes you will allow the team to help you enjoy the fascinating and diverse world of cheese too.
