WestQuay has been voted as the best of its kind in the UK. This is a large shopping centre with three floors. It is a paradise for the fashion-conscious with brands such as French Connection, Karen Millen, Hollister, Apple and other big names recognised worldwide.


The compact city centre has a variety of department stores, wide pedestrian streets and markets. Markets can be found every Friday and Saturday around the Bargate Monument. Traditional high street shopping is found on the traffic-free Above Bar Street, and specialty shops are available in East Street, High Street, Queensway, Oxford Street, London Road and Bedford Place.
