For many people, Christmas truly is the most wonderful time of year. But the weeks leading up to Santa’s visit are sometimes hectic if not overwhelming. Save yourself the stress and take the train to Blighty’s shopping and style capitals for a one-stop-Christmas-shop
• Take the train … to Glasgow’s Buchanan Street Galleries
Outside London, Glasgow is Blighty’s biggest shopping city – a reputation that this style hub takes seriously. Take the train to Glasgow Queen Street or Central Station and jump out at the foot of one of the most vibrant shopping districts in the city. Shop till you drop, and jump back on the train without ever having to scour the streets for a parking space.
• Take the train … to Manchester’s Trafford Centre
The Trafford Centre in Greater Manchesteris the largest shopping mall in the UK, and it’s got more than just shops. Take a break in the stunning Orient food court with more than 60 cafes, restaurants and bars. Just hop on the train to Manchester Piccadilly and when you get there you can take the X50 bus straight to the Trafford Centre.
• Take the train to Liverpool’s Liverpool One Centre
Liverpool is the sporting ground of famous footballers and their well-heeled wives and girlfriends, so it’s the must-go shopping spot for boutique and designer shopping. Try Liverpool One for Selfridges and designer outlets, and the city centre for WAG-favourite Cricket.
• Take the train … to London’s Westfield Stratford City
Westfield Stratford City outside London is Blighty’s newest shopping centre, and gathering major buzz from shopaholics. See what all the fuss is about and take your Christmas list on the train to Stratford International station or Stratford Regional – and from there it’s only a short drive or taxi ride to the shopping centre.
Get ahead of the curve this Christmas season and take your shopping list out to Blighty’s best shopping centres early and say goodbye to panicked last-minute shopping.
