Retail therapy! Our Top Five destinations

Shops, lunch, shops, cocktails…

Making plans to visit your favourite high street, department stores and boutiques again?


It’s not just the browsing and purchases that are so enjoyable. It is the opportunity to catch up with friends or family… often with a long lunch at a nice restaurant and maybe drinks to finish off a perfect day of ‘retail therapy’.



Avoid that crazy city centre traffic!

Does city centre traffic and parking send you crazy? Then treat yourself to a dedicated chauffeur service with Qantyr to transport you to your favourite shopping destinations before maybe dining out with drinks and traveling home in luxury.

Our top five shopping destinations…

We’ve considered different options that are accessible from the Midlands and put together a list of our ‘Top Five’ shopping destinations complete with links to some fabulous places to shop and dine out! So you can mull over what your perfect retail therapy options are…


No 1: Alderley Edge - a picturesque market village on the outskirts of Cheshire with plenty of designer stores, boutiques, trendy bars and restaurants. Shop at Parasol and Tuula and visit the nearby spa at Cottons Hotel before heading out to eat at The Alderley Edge Bar & Grill and drinks at The Botanist.


No 2: Bullring and Grand Central Birmingham - situated in the heart of Birmingham next to attractive canals, waterside bars and restaurants. You can explore the huge Selfridges and Bullring shopping plaza and enjoy the seasonal menus at Browns, Indian cuisine at Mowgli or sip cocktails at The Alchemist on the waterfront.


No 3: Manchester - a buzzing city with plenty of shops and nightlife. Why not explore the luxury department stores Harvey Nichols & Selfridges, enjoy tapas at Porta or fine dining at Mishoom in the 1920s Grade II-listed Manchester Hall or simply explore the quirky bars of the ‘Northern Quarter’.

No 4: Chester - full of history, heritage and quaint cobbled streets lined with quirky independent shops. We love the Grosvenor Shopping Centre and the Rows – a two-tiered covered shopping gallery that dates back to Medieval times. Sit next to the river Dee for some food and drinks at Hickory’s Smokehouse or visit the oldest racecourse in the world at Chester Racecourse.


No 5: Coventry - voted the UK City of Culture for 2021! Visit West Orchard Shopping Centre then unwind with afternoon tea on the garden terrace of nearby Coombe Abbey or opt for Latin American food and cocktails at Las Iguanas. Coventry is definitely worth exploring!
