Bath’s Brolly Walk

June 2016

This summer, Georgian Bath (a UNESCO World Heritage Centre, no less) is looking more photogenic than ever before – hard to believe, we know, but it’s thanks in part to the installation of Umbrella Street in the city’s SouthGate development.

As umbrella connoisseurs, we’re obviously BIG fans of the rainbow brollies and the cheery touch they’ve brought to the shopping district… come rain or shine!

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen or heard of Umbrella Street, either. There was a similar display in Agueda in Portugal in 2011. Photos of it were shared the world over and with the installation proving so popular, it’s been followed up with more displays every summer since then.

They’ve been seen decorating Borough Market in London, as well as Anne’s Lane in Dublin. Who knows where they’ll pop up next…?

Simple yet incredibly effective (not unlike our own umbrellas) these brollies have all done a great job of attracting attention with their striking appearance while proving their worth by providing shoppers with some shelter from the elements as well. Who says functional can’t be beautiful?!
