Christmas is coming, and that means Christmas Shopping is too. Whether you love it or hate it, tracking down those all important gifts for your nearest and dearest is an unavoidable part of the festive preparations. With that in mind, why not make a weekend of it? Here at Quebecs Luxury Apartments, we welcome lots of guests doing just that – staying in Leeds with the sole intention of shopping in Leeds.
It’s no surprise really, known as ‘The Knightsbridge of the North’, the shopping experience in Leeds is one of the best in the UK in terms of quality, style and diversity. It’s ideal for Christmas shopping, especially if you have lots of different sorts of gifts to buy. By staying in Yorkshire, booking a luxury apartment at Quebecs Luxury Apartments gives you an ideally located central ‘base camp’ to complete all your Christmas Shopping in a weekend – and have a luxuriously comfortable place to put your feet up afterwards!
That said, one of the great things about Leeds City Centre is that due to its compact layout, you won’t actually have to pound too much pavement to make your way between the huge selection of designer and high street stores on offer. From designer luxury to high street bargains through to independent retailers, Leeds really does have it all.
The Victoria Quarter is a great place to start exploring the shopping experience Leeds has to offer. Boasting over 70 luxury stores, it is home to brands such as Vivienne Westwood, Paul Smith, Louis Vuitton, Mulberry and Illamasqua to name but a few.
There are great eateries too – grab a coffee in the Harvey Nichols espresso bar, a light lunch in Yo! Sushi or an energy boosting smoothie from Filmore & Union.
The Grand Arcade is another must visit Leeds shopping spot. It’s one of the oldest shopping arcades in the city and is filled with independent designers offering a huge variety of bespoke, unusual and stylish goods. Perfect when you’re shopping for the person who prefers to steer away from mainstream high street brands.
Many other independent brands, such as Candy Candy and JuJu Gifts can be found under the stunning domed roof of the Leeds Corn exchange. It also hosts many vintage, record and food fairs throughout the year – there’s always something new to discover, a real treat for the shopper looking for something unusual.
Trinity Leeds is something of a beacon, welcoming shoppers with its huge variety of over 120 shops and cafes, from high end designers such as Armani & Hollister, to high street favourites Primark and River Island. Variety really is the spice of life at Trinity, offering something for everyone in attractive, easily accessible surroundings.
If shopping really isn’t your thing, why not look into enlisting the services of a personal shopper to help? With so many luxury stores to choose from in Leeds, the choice can be overwhelming and in fact a personal shopping experience can help save time and achieve better results.
With our serviced apartments being so close to the Victoria Quarter, we’re a popular accommodation choice for shoppers planning to indulge in retail therapy there with all the trimmings.
Maybe you prefer the idea of finding everything under one roof? The iconic Harvey Nichols boasts a huge variety of goods and a personal shopping experience that promises to cater to your every need. Our serviced apartments are also located conveniently for access to the recently opened John Lewis store, housed in the stunning Victoria Gate complex.
