Liverpool is a must for fashion. Designer boutiques in Cavern Walks and Bold Street cater for lovers of catwalk couture while those wanting to dress for less flock to the popular high street stores on the bustling Church Street.
Now the city’s large-scale new retail developments – Liverpool One and the Met Quarter – are set to re-establish Liverpool as one of the country’s top five retail destinations.
Liverpool One is the largest retail-led regeneration project in Europe and will set a benchmark for the next generation of international city centre development.
The £900m project on the Paradise Street site will provide around 1.65m sqft of retail space as well as new apartments, 3,000 car parking spaces, two hotels, a bus station and a multi-screen cinema. The first phase is expected to open in spring 2008.
Nearby, the Met Quarter in Whitechapel, housed within the shell of the city’s old post office, offers 147,000 sqft of retail space, attracting some of the biggest names from the fashion world.
And For the most visited Liverpool attractions, visit the stunning Albert Dock which showcases the best of the city in a World Heritage, waterfront setting.
Situated in the largest group of Grade I listed buildings in the UK, the Albert Dock houses many award winning visitor attractions including Tate Liverpool, the famous Beatles Story, Merseyside Maritime Museum and the new International Slavery Museum. You can join a number of fascinating Liverpool tours, including the creepy Shiverpool Ghost Tour or a city and water tour on the Yellow Duckmarine. There are also a great selection of Liverpool bars and restaurants including the new Circo, Babycream, Blue, Est Est Est, Panamerican Club, Ha!Ha! Bar and Canteen, Vinea and Spice Lounge.
