If you love shopping, you’ll be delighted with Liverpool. Shoppers are spoilt for choice between gleaming new city-centre shopping centres, boutique arcades, bohemian streets and farmers’ markets. Why not stay an extra day or two before or after the conference and sample one of the best shopping experiences in the country.
Liverpool ONE, located right by the iconic waterfront is an open-air shopping experience on several floors and home to more than 170 stores, bars and restaurants.
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.
