Whether it is High Street fast fashion or couture, Liverpool’s got it covered. Liverpool ONE offers more than 160 famous High Street stores, ultra-hip fashion brands, cool independent boutiques, cafes and restaurants.
This vibrant development was opened as part of Liverpool’s recent regeneration programme. It cost £1 billion to set up and covers 43 acres of land. It also contains a large number of quality restaurants and a multiplex cinema, which are open late into the evening.
The world class shopping facilities include a wealth of city-centre shopping centres, bohemian streets and farmers markets.
In fact, you can find everything you need on Liverpool’s Bold Street, which is largely pedestrianised and features a mixture of different stores that line its pavements.
Cavern Walks is a mecca for those searching for cutting edge independents such as Vivienne Westwood.
The Metquarter is Liverpool’s newest shopping centre with brands such as Armani, Timberland, Boss and Hobbs and is anchored by Flannels, an independent retailer stocking collections by Gucci, Prada and Dolce & Gabbana.
Inside this shopping complex, shoppers can lose themselves inside a labyrinth of independent boutiques, or you can take time out to relax in the nearby coffee shops.
Albert Dock houses some of the city's trendiest stores, together with a number of art shops and gallery outlets, such as the Tate Gallery gift shop, Apple store and the Beatles Story gift shop.
Church Street is home to High Street fashion, as is Bold Street, situated close by. If you are feeling adventurous, then check out the Heritage Market every Sunday from 9am to 4pm, where you can buy anything from cakes to Liverpool memorabilia, jewellery or even get a haircut!
After you have completed your shopping for clothes, why not spend some time thinking about the interior design of your house and what kind of new furniture would fit into it nicely?
Zen is the place for this kind of shopping, which sells funky furniture of all shapes and sizes. Alternatively, you might be more interested in buying vinyl from Beat Records, the underground record shop on Slater Street.
Overall, shopping is officially recognised now as one of the most popular activities to do in Liverpool.
Booking a stay at a Liverpool hotel, such as the Heywood House Hotel, will not only allow you to take advantage of the abundance of shopping facilities, but it will also give you access to many of its other attractions.
The city’s other highlights include its lively night life, unique music scene, fascinating culture and world class sports facilities, such as Anfield.
