Things to do in Solihull | Touchwood Solihull

Solihull is one of the most affluent areas in the country, so it’s no great surprise that the town boasts one of the best shopping centres around. Read our guide to discover everything you need to know, from the stores and entertainment venues to the Touchwood Solihull opening times.

The £110-million retail hub is a lovely addition to Solihull. The Victorian arcade-style shop fronts all give it an upmarket vibe. As far as its stores go, you might find a greater number of options in places like the Bull Ring in Birmingham, but it’s the sheer quality of stores in Touchwood that’s hard to beat.


For example, John Lewis is Touchwood’s most popular attraction, with more than 350,000 lines available in a stunning store that spans three floors over more than a quarter of a million square feet. John Lewis stores have a reputation for stocking the best brands in the world, plus, they promise that you’ll ‘never be knowingly undersold’, so you can shop to your heart’s content knowing that you don’t have to worry about whether you can find it cheaper elsewhere.

To give you an idea of what else you can find in Touchwood, there are high street fashion names like Zara, Topshop, River Island, Monsoon, Next and H&M, plus popular brands like Hollister, Joules and Superdry. You’ll also find jewellers, such as Pandora, Swarovski, Goldsmiths, Beaverbrooks and Ernest Jones, with many more adding to the eclectic mix of retail destinations.

If you’re hungry after all that retail therapy and need a sit-down and some refreshment, you’ll be glad to hear that Touchwood has loads of food and drink options for you to choose from. There’s Five Guys, Starbucks or Pret a Manger for a quick snack, or you can grab a table at TGI Fridays, Wagamama, Pizza Express or Ask Italian.

And as if that wasn’t enough, on the first floor of Touchwood, you’ve got the option of seeing the latest blockbusters at the Cineworld. With its nine state-of-the-art screens, including wall-to-wall, ceiling-high superscreens it also boasts the latest Dolby speaker systems to give you the most immersive cinema experience possible.

Touchwood is open seven days a week, with late-night shopping on Thursdays. Plus, there are 6,000 parking spaces in Solihull town centre; 1,700 of those are Touchwood’s extra-wide bays, as well. So, there’s no need to squash yourself between cars when you’re carrying a particularly indulgent haul of shopping bags.
