Shopping Southampton

WestQuay shopping centre is the south’s leading shopping complex. With over 100 shops to choose from it is no wonder people from all over the UK come here for their Christmas shopping! And the good news is that we have apartments within distance (some walking) of the complex itself. We take a look to find out why.


WestQuay has always been the first choice for south coast shoppers and it is not hard to see why. With retailers from John Lewis, M&S and Apple this really is the premier place to shop. With over four levels to choose from it is a shopping paradise.

ImageOn the ground level among the glistening Christmas lights and decorations you’ll float from outlets such as M&S to Zara. Entertainment and performances are on hand to get you in the festive spirit in the open lower square should you wish to take a breather from carrying those bags. And this is just the ground level!

ImageTake the glass express lift (with Parent and Push chair priority) up to level one to continue your shopping experience. The entrance to John Lewis is always a special one at Christmas offering you that chance to shop for someone who has everything with a vast electrical department and perfumery. On the upper level of John Lewis is the in-famous restaurant offering a wide selection of food choices whilst dining in a panoramic view of Southampton and it’s docks.

ImageBack at level one you can enjoy walking down the glass roofed avenue housing some of the UK’s finest high street retail outlets. From Next to H&M you won’t be short of a bargain here or in one of the shoe stores offering something for everyone. This level is home to the popular Apple store. For those who are technical enthusiasts this is a must visit, even if you don’t intend to buy anything.

Continue down this avenue of amazing choice to take in a jewellery bargain and visit one of our favourites the Swarovski crystal shop. Home to the worlds greatest crystal makers again this is well worth a visit and not as expensive as you think!

ImageAt this street level floor follow the smell of sizzling sausages and mulled wine outside as Frankfurt comes to Southampton with the German Christmas market. With a huge selection of hand made gifts, sweets and food it is a fine place to pick up something unique for that someone back home that has everything!

ImageFancy a break? WestQuay has a food terrace dedicated to those who fancy either a quick snack or a hearty meal. From Pizza Hut to Nandos there is plenty of chance to sit down and relax with friends or family whilst keeping your shopping close by. Fast food outlets including KFC, Burger King and MacDonalds are on hand for those fast food lovers. For the health conscious why not take in a baked potato or a plate of pasta in the nearby restaurants.

ImageIf a caffeine fix is what you are after take in a huge mug of something hot at some of the UK’s best coffee shops. From Costa Coffee to Pret-a-Manger there is plenty of choice to chill inside and out while you watch the world go by under the Christmas lights of WestQuay on a comfy sofa. Then you’ll be ready to head back to the luxury of one of our apartments.
