If you love shopping, you’ll fit in well here; Liverpudlians like to look good and set trends. Shoppers are spoilt for choice between gleaming new city-centre shopping centres, boutique arcades, bohemian streets and farmers markets.
Liverpool ONE, right in the heart of the city, is the huge open-air shopping district that is home to more than 160 famous high street and designer names, including the only Beauty Bazaar Harvey Nichols in the country.
The exclusive Metquarter is the place to find select fashion and beauty outlets such as Gieves & Hawkes, Hugo Boss, MAC and Armani Exchange.
The City Central BID area includes Church Street, home to mega-stores such as Marks and Spencer and Forever 21.
Lonely Planet, no less, rated Bold Street as one of the best shopping streets in the country, and it’s easy to see why. With independent stores selling everything from world foods to funky clothes to records to art, it’s well worth spending a couple of hours browsing.
Shopping outside the city centre has much to offer too. Lark Lane, south of the city centre, is full of bohemian boutiques and street markets. Lord Street in Southport is an elegant parade of Victorian arcades with a whole host of smart shops. Try West Kirby in Wirral for boutique shopping, or the farmers’ markets and farm shops for delicious local produce. Cheshire Oaks was the first and remains the UK’s largest Designer Outlet and you'll always find some great bargains.
