Follow the crowds to Liverpool ONE, one of the largest outdoor shopping and entertainment centers in the United Kingdom. Browse more than 150 high street stores, relax at one of the center’s many cafes and restaurants, then catch a movie or test your skills on the adventure golf course.
Opened in 2008 during the city’s year as European capital of culture, Liverpool ONE is a major retail, entertainment and residential redevelopment comprising six distinct districts in the city’s heart. Take a stroll down Peters Lane for a range of top designer labels such as Boss, Karen Millen and Ted Baker London, then stop for a coffee at one of the many cafés. Continue on to Paradise Street and South John Street where you’ll find the Apple Store, Nike and many of the nation’s favorites such as John Lewis.
When it’s time to rest your credit card, make your way to Chavasse Park in the city center. Named after a local war hero, the park is the perfect place to escape the bustling streets and enjoy a picnic or just some fresh air. Movie lovers can enjoy the latest blockbusters at the 14-screen Odeon cinema complex. Or, if you’re feeling energetic, practice your swing at the Jungle Rumble Adventure Golf Course, which features two 18-hole courses and simulator.
Foodies need only follow their noses to the numerous restaurants serving cuisines from all over the world. As well as an extensive choice of popular chain restaurants you’ll find fine dining establishments featuring some of the country’s best chefs. The center features two major hotels as well as plenty of serviced apartments, so after a big day of shopping and dining, simply hop into an elevator and head up to your room.
Liverpool ONE occupies the heart of the city and can be easily accessed either on foot or by public transport. Plenty of paid parking is available, however, it tends fill up quickly on the weekends and during peak times.
