First time I've been here we rented accommodation for a few nights. Great area and so close to the city the trams run all the time and you don't need to wait long. Lots of interesting shops although some expensive lovely little place for tea here called Cuppa.

Bridge Road Richmond is full of restaurants, boutique clothing stores and other interesting businesses. Bridge Road has come a long way since the 1970s, when it was the dead end of town. Now everything happening. Getting there is easy, just get the 75 tram from outside Flinders Street Railway Station

Not as good as it was a couple of years ago. It was renouned for its clearance stores. You still might find a bargain. It is a long street so a long walk.

Our local. A great array of food & a few bars. Sporting Globe great to watch major sporting events - good food & live music Fri/Sat. Spread Eagle pub has great food & cosy environment as long as the bouncers don't let in drunk losers. This precinct is much more about coffee and food now than shopping. Sadly lots of... More

There are so many empty shops on Bridge Road that it is almost not worth shopping there. Unfortunately, most of the shops that are left are cafes with a huge reduction in discount fashion stores which is what the road was once famous for. I probably wouldn't bother going there again. (Bridge Road landlords, you've been too greedy!)

Visited here for the first time in years, scouting for formal dresses. There were quite a few good options so that was good. Most of the shops were from the city to church street. There seemed to be many empty shop fronts which is definitely the sign of the dfo era. The sales people in the shops I went to... More

For people that are interested in the design and planning of historic Melbourne streets. Plenty of food and drink on display, but don't expect a welcome from the gentrified crowd.

The shopping may not be what it once was but there are still plenty of restaurants and cafes right on the edge of Melbourne city. Through traffic is constant but that need not be too disturbing.
