Shopping in UK

WestfieldYou can find big shopping centers every part of UK, these are many very big shopping malls at one place usually set just outside most major cities. Some stretch for miles and cover floor after floor. Within the walls are literally hundreds of stores offering a wide varieties of items. There is no specialization, all shopping centers offer nearly everything.

Most cities in UK have High Streets where you can find all the best known High Street Stores as well as individual little boutiques and shops. Unlike the shopping centers where you know exactly what you are getting, visiting the High Streets, lanes and less well known areas, you will find surprises and delights. The added advantage is that you will get a true flavor of the area too.
