In the heart of Southampton lies Westquay Shopping Centre, offering 800,000 square feet of shoppers’ paradise. With around 150 stores in total, you couldn’t pick a better place for a shopping spree on the south coast.
Westquay Shopping Centre
For fashion, there’s the likes of Zara, River Island, Next and H&M. Or, if it’s homeware that you are searching for, then head to John Lewis, Cath Kidston or M&S. Those in the market for some new jewellery have plenty of choices, with stores such as Ernest Jones, Goldsmiths, Pandora and Swarovski. If you are visiting with young children, then why not take them to one of the centre’s toy and gift stores, such as Build-a-Bear Workshop or Smiggle? There really is enough at Westquay to shop until you drop.
If all that shopping proves to be thirsty work, or you fancy a bite to eat, pay a visit to one of Westquay’s bars or restaurants. There are plenty of food outlets to choose from, including Nando’s, Five Guys, and Wagamama, as well as fast food joints such as KFC, Subway and McDonald’s. For drinks, you could head to one of the many restaurants with bars, such as TGI Fridays and All Bar One.
Westquay is also a great place to come for leisure. Catch the latest blockbuster movie at the Showcase Cinema de Lux, which has the latest Dolby Atmos laser projection in all screens. Or, you could bowl some strikes at Hollywood Bowl.
The centre is open from 9am-8pm during the week. It closes an hour earlier on Saturdays at 7pm and Sunday hours are 11am-5pm. There is also a multi-storey car park on-site if you are driving to the centre. Although if you happen to be staying at our West Quay hotel, then you are less than a ten-minute walk away – which is handy if you are planning a shopping spree!
