My short break in Liverpool [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12]


weekends, and queues at the check tend to get quite long. But with 800 employers and many working on the tills, the queues go down very quickly and you will soon be walking away with a stash of Primark clothing, without having damaged your bank account too much!


Be Bold…


Just north of Church Street I found Bold Street, home to the majority of Liverpool’s bars and cafes and attracting most of the Liverpool nightlife. But as I took the journey down this long road, I came across many shops nestled amongst the bars, such as Chandlers and the enchanting Maggie May. Many of the designer brand stores are also situated on Bold Street, such as Karen Millen and Dune, as well as The Body Shop, Kookai and Microzine. Enjoy some fine lunch at one of the bars before continuing your retail therapy in one of the classier stores.


Saintly Shopping…


Wherever I happened to go in Liverpool city centre, I could not miss the St John’s Shopping Centre, just south of Liverpool Lime Street train station. A huge shopping mall, it houses hundreds of shops with low budget prices. For fashionable clothes at cheap prices, Storm is the perfect place for stylish dresses and footwear. Extremely popular and well known amongst Liverpool’s shoppers, it is the number one shop inside St John’s, located on the upper floor near to the escalators. Most of the stores here are independent shops selling clothing and footwear, although I did happen to find stores selling accessories such as umbrellas and hats, and others selling electrical appliances. St John’s also has its own Food Court, where you will be spoilt for choice for what to eat. After walking around the court for several minutes, I remembered the noodles I had previously eaten whilst in Liverpool One and settled for a McFlurry and a coke from McDonald’s. Who doesn’t opt for McDonald’s whilst shopping?


Seeing ‘Square’s…


Similar to St John’s, Clayton Square Shopping Centre also holds numerous shops and stores, ranging from JD Sports and Quest to Monsoon and Oasis. I personally loved the Disney Store, where there are many fancy dress costumes, designed to resemble those of Disney characters, as well as toys and cuddly toy bears of Winnie the Pooh and Tigger.


Splash the cash…


If high street doesn’t really appeal to you and you much prefer designer brands, then Cavern Walks is just the place for you. I made my way to this large shopping complex on Mathew Street, appreciating the spectacular front of the complex which has been kept to its original Victorian architecture. Inside you will find designer names such as Vivienne Westwood and Drome.
