Fantastic shopping here and you won't be disappointed. You must eat at Singapore Street food at the end of the street (opposite end of La Place) as it's amazing!

This would have to be one of the most beautiful streets in France. It is such a pleasure to walk along this street and just enjoy the walk. It is not very wide, and it certainly is not Avenue des Champs Elysees, but the shops, the restaurants, the cafes, the people, the artists, the performers, the police going up and... More

Rue St Catherine is advertised as a major shopping street but its no Oxford Street or Champs Elysees, it's just a pedestrianised main street like many others you can find all over Europe. Most of the shops were low/middle market and the best places are in the the side streets. We walked the entire length of the street and found... More

All the stores are exactly the same in this street than in any other major city to be honest. So it does not have much interest if you're looking for something different. But many of the surroundings streets have amazing small boutiques. The new passage Ste Catherine is also very nice to go to with the Lego store and the... More

Rue St Catherine is a mile of pedestrian shopping lined with restaurants, shops and boutiques. It's a shoppers delight in a central location. Great people watching at outdoor bistro seating! It is a must see!

The most well known street of Bordeaux! If you want to go shopping, that's the place to be! It's the biggest comercial street in Europe I guess! All kinds of stores. From the expensive ones to the cheap ones.

If you like crowds of ill-dressed young people, a long string of mediocre shops having (fake) sales, street performers and panhandlers - all "ad-nauseum - then Rue Ste Catnerine is the place for you! There are much better ways to experience the charm of Bordeaux.
