The perfect day out
When it comes to making the most of your free time it pays to plan, or at least locate the places you want to go. For some this will mean a visit to a local museum, for others a trip to a theme park.
However, for many there's nothing quite like a day exploring a High Street full of shops, markets and designer outlets packed full of deals and offers to get the heart racing. Whether it's shoes, handbags, make-up or clothing, a day of bargaining, window shopping or indulging in the latest fashions is a great way to pamper and treat yourself. For some of the best indulgent shopping experiences why take a few days out North West of the country and head over to Liverpool's ONE retail destination.
Whilst the Capital might have a range of different shopping experiences, The North has hit on a convenient and fun way to bring together some of the most exciting aspects of London City shopping. Over at Liverpool ONE in the centre of Liverpool there's grand architecture, key landmarks, cutting edge industry design, not to mention an impressive 1.65 million sq ft of shops and leisure facilities.
With around 160 shops there's no shortage of choice, with big name high street stores and smaller boutique options to keep things dynamic. Shop until you drop, then enjoy a choice of eating options in a selection of over 20 bars and restaurants. Stay local for lunch, coffee breaks or a beverage and minimalise wasted shopping time; what more could you ask for!
If you really want to treat yourself why not make the most of the personal shopper service, or take the family for a fun packed day of shopping, cinema and dinner out. Shops at Liverpool ONE are designed to cater for all ages so there's something to keep everyone happy no matter what age.
Or stay at home
Of course the thought of exploring over a hundred different shops and delving through rails of the latest fashions is not everyone's cup of tea. For some, shopping needs to be quick, efficient and without the hassle of large crowds. For those looking to enjoy shopping when, where and how they like try hitting the on-line stores and browse the product ranges in the comfort of your own home.
Once you've spent a good day or so weighing up your choices it couldn't be easier to buy your items and have them delivered right to your door. If you want to make the most of a day at the shops you could even phone the stores and have the items put aside for you to collect.
Whatever your leisure preferences, a day out at Liverpool ONE is bound to satisfy every retail therapy need. Just don't forget to think about how you're going to get all those bags home with you once you're done!
