Shopping in Liverpool

Creative Tourist

The best places to get your retail kicks in the city – our guide to shopping in Liverpool includes retail behemoths like Liverpool ONE, but has a penchant for the smaller, more unusual outlets the city has to offer.

  • 1. Lunya Liverpool

    Lunya Liverpool, 55 Hanover Street, Liverpool, Merseyside, L1 3DN - Visit now

    This place is many things to many people: a Catalan restaurant, tapas bar and deli to some, the lone voice of independent retail in Liverpool’s central shopping district to others. But to us, Lunya is a fine place to stock up on chocolates, cheese, cold and cured meats, wine and the sorts of curious tinned foodstuffs that make for great gifts.

  • 2. Utility

    Inside Utility

    Utility, 60 Bold Street, Liverpool, Merseyside, L1 4EA - Visit now

    Utility, a homewares, gifts and furniture brand, has three shops in Liverpool’s city centre. One of the two branches on Bold Street takes furniture as it’s focus, with beautiful and unusual designs throughtout the store. The other outlet sells lighting, homewares and a selection of quirky smaller items. The third branch is in the city’s major shopping centre, Liverpool ONE. All three are innovative, with interesting choices either for gifts, or bigger pieces for home.

  • 3. Weaver’s Door

    Weaver’s Door, Cavern Walks Shopping Centre, Harrington St, Liverpool, Merseyside, L2 6RE - Visit now

    Have a man in your life who likes to look good? This menswear outlet (or should that be outfit?) has been selling top-end fashion brands for over 25 years: head here for threads by the likes of Folk, Norse Projects, Fred Perry, John Smedley, Herschel and Oliver Spencer.

  • 4. R&H Fine Wines

    R&H Fine Wines, 12 Queen Avenue, Queens Insurance Building, Liverpool, Merseyside, L2 4TZ - Visit now

    R&H Fine Wines is the only wine store in Liverpool where the stock is majority biodynamic or organic. Tucked away on Queen’s Avenue, this shop might not be the easiest to find – but it is worth searching out. The extensive stock doesn’t translate to patchy advice from the shop’s staff and the owner, Devin Stewart, is an especially deep font of knowledge. It’s the ideal place to be guided through the kind of buying that often feels fraught with posturing and pitfalls.

  • 5. Bluecoat Display Centre

    Bluecoat Display Centre, Bluecoat Chambers, School Lane, Liverpool, Merseyside, L1 3BX - Visit now

    This little shop, tucked safely within the walls of the city centre’s oldest building, has been doing its contemporary craft thing since 1959. It’s the place to head for one-off and handmade glassware, jewellery, sculpture or prints by both emerging and established artists at prices that, while not cheap, are sensible enough to make their ownership a distinct possibility.
