Liverpool ONE: The Smart Set's Breath Of Fresh Air

Discover a stunning 42 acres of retail, restaurants and rolling greenery

Published on July 19th 2012.

Liverpool ONE: The Smart Set's Breath Of Fresh Air

IT'S stacked high with 160 of the UK's favourite stores and restaurants, best loved brands and five acres of rolling greenery overlooking a World Heritage site.

It's a day out like no other - at the heart of a thriving, pulsating city like no other.

No wonder the smart set right across the North West regard Liverpool ONE as the region's breath of fresh air.

Liverpool ONE is as far removed from the run-of-the-mill indoor shopping mall as you can imagine.

Multi-award winning architecture, built around the existing streets of Liverpool, spans 1.65million sq ft - making this a must-visit for those who love to shop, eat, drink and relax.

You can even go and live there if you wish!

And there's more: Liverpool ONE includes a fantastic 14-screen cinema, an indoor adventure golf range and, of course, that park.


Since opening in 2008, Liverpool ONE has rapidly become one of Europe’s biggest retail and leisure destinations.

It plays host to the new concept House of Fraser.com store and will welcome Harvey Nichols later this year – new neighbours for sparkling department stores like John Lewis, Debenhams and the biggest Top Shop outside London.

Liverpool ONE is home to brands including All Saints, Jaeger, Whistles, Reiss, Hobbs, Jigsaw, Karen Millen, and Flannels – and in the mix there are plenty of independent designers,  traders and restaurateurs too.

Experience the finest Spanish cuisine at the UK's only Catalonian restaurant and deli, Lunya, where you can snack early on chorizo sausage rolls washed down with fabulous Salou coffee, or stick around until late for flamenco dancing lessons or even a quiz.

Sneak off for long lunch in one of the many restaurants on the Leisure Terrace, which looks right  across the waterfront, or, around the corner, Jamie's Italian. Chaophraya offers some of the best Thai food in the region and cocktail lovers can unwind in style at the adjacent Palm Sugar Lounge.

There’s plenty of pester potential for the children too, including a Lego store, Disney store, Build-a-Bear, and The Entertainer.


Not to mention, until September, The Beach, a purpose built outdoor paradise complete with sand, sea, Caribbean cocktails and a funfair.

Prefer some music? Then Tickle the Ivories on one of five pianos, tuned to concert pitch, dotted around the 42 acres.

With over 3,000 purpose built parking spaces, simply follow signs to the Waterfront and Liverpool ONE car park to pull up right below the shops.

Liverpool ONE stores are open until 8pm every weekday, but the fun goes on much later than that.

Why look anywhere else when you know you have found The ONE?
