Manchester houses a plentiful array of shopping centres to satisfy all tastes. With Christmas round the corner, these stores are now putting on their best displays of visual merchandising to enhance the city’s festive allure.

Some of the biggest international luxury brands have opened exclusive boutiques in Manchester. There are also different malls, shopping centres or quarters in the city, to be explored by shopaholics, but also by those who would just like to indulge in the inexpensive treat of window shopping.

Trafford Centre

This massive palace-type construction is well-connected to Manchester’s city centre, at only a 20-minute drive away. Shopping in Trafford is also quite the experience, with over 200 shops spread around 200,000 square metres, dedicated exclusively to retail. The centre’s interior design is forever changing, turning the shopping experience into a bright and fun promenade along the richly decorated corridors.

There are various designer shops: Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, Tommy Hilfiger, Lacoste, Hugo Boss or Victoria’s Secret. Visitors can enjoy further designer fashion, and luxury cosmetics in Selfridges, in the centre’s 3-storey The Dome.

The Trafford Centre is home to some of the best high street shops. For those looking to have a bit of variety to their shopping outing, there are also Legoland Discovery Centre and the Sea Life Aquarium, located in the adjoining Trafford Palazzo.

The Northern Quarter

At the heart of the city, this bustling area connects Piccadilly Gardens with the Ancoats. Along its streets, you can find independent shops, selling everything from vintage records all the way to books and magazines.

Appreciated for its artsy-chic vibes, this area is well-suited for indie-oriented shoppers. Indie fashion and eccentric gift shops are intermingled with boho cafes, bars and restaurants, or art galleries.

New Cathedral Street & King Street

These two streets are within walking distance of each other, and rivalling when it comes to the luxury designer shops that they host.

One of the UK’s seven Harvey Nichols stores is on New Cathedral Street, housing great designer brands like Coach or Vivienne Westwood. Next to it is Selfridges, which needs little introduction. Alongside famous designer shops – Ted Baker, Hugo Boss and Louis Vuitton, to name but a few – visitors can also wander around smaller independent fashion boutiques.

Cheshire Oaks

Further afield the Greater Manchester Area, Cheshire Oaks is the largest designer outlet of its kind in the UK. Comprised of almost 150 individual shops, visitors will be spoilt for choice. Burberry, Hugo Boss or the sports brands like Adidas and Nike can all be found here, applying discounts of up to 75%. Cheshire Oaks is also family – and dog – friendly as it has a playground area, a carousel and it won’t object to visitors taking their dogs into the shops with them.
