High Street South

Have you noticed the stickers on the shop windows along High Street South? These have been created by the Dunstable Cultural Consortium, in collaboration with Dunstable Local History Society and Dunstable Repertory Theatre. All the stickers take you on a virtual journey of the independent businesses that were along the High Street in the past. Simply scan the QR code with your smartphone camera and all will be revealed.

Today’s High Street South still has many independent businesses with Wrigglies exotic pet shop being my children’s favourite. The Bearded Dragon is definitely on top of their wish list. As much as I love going into the shop with them, the snake section is an area I try to avoid! For more information on Wrigglies have a look at their website

The Milky Bar is next on my children’s list for a dessert treat. The Milky Bar is a contemporary dessert restaurant serving a large selection of desserts, milkshakes, coffees, and teas. The Milky Bar is open from 4 pm to late weekdays, and from midday at weekends.

High Street South has a variety of takeaways for an evening treat when cooking is not an option. With so many to choose from it could take you awhile to decide. Starting with burgers from Rack & Bone and fried chicken from Southern Fried Chicken, or Peri Peri Original for a little kick to its chicken dishes. Vantage Indian restaurant and Bay Leaf Indian takeaway and Anarkali are all along High Street South. Tong Wong and Hoi Wan offer Chinese takeaway and of course you could always treat yourself with Thai cuisine at Lumpini Thai restaurant.

This is a very brief tour and I hope you will venture along High Street South and take a look at the past with the window stickers and the present by visiting our independents  in  Dunstable.
