After what has felt like an eternity, England’s cities are once again filled with the hustle and bustle of people enjoying eased lockdown restrictions. People near and far (well, not too far) can once again enjoy people watching as they eat out at their favourite city cafes, explore art galleries, listen to buskers and, of course, shop until they drop!
To celebrate the return of city life and our much-loved shopping culture, we have put together a list of our favourite shopping centres in England.
Proudly the largest shopping centre in England, Westfield is a must stop for anyone visiting London. The landmark complex houses both budget and high-end stores, a variety of food options, as well as an on-site gym and spas.

Liverpool One is an open-aired shopping centre that is home to over 170 shops, bars, and restaurants. The centre is within walking distance of the stunning Albert Docks. So, once you have finished stocking up on goodies, you can go for a lovely stroll by the water and stop in the Titanic museum.
