“ City streets, markets, shopping malls, large retail parks... „
I am a shop-aholic and i love to shop until i drop so when i recently visited Preston i literary did shop until i dropped.I left at 8 in the morning and returned back to the hotel at 8 in the evening with a empty purse and a hotel room full.I was so pleased there was a few different shopping centers and most of the shops was reasonable prices there was also a high street market which did designer bags for great prices, Jewelery,Clothes and much more.There was a few shops chock a block with handbags which sold my favorite Gucci.There was so many places to eat i didn't no weather to eat in McDonald's Kfc pizza places or general cafes there was so much choice.I couldn't believe what bargains there was in one of the centers i must have spent around £40 and came out with 20 bags.What was even better the people was so friendly and made me feel so welcome.I just couldn't get over how cheap it was as i come from somerset which isent very cheap but up there i was in shopping heaven so many shops such great prices i would go again very soon and tell any one looking to shop till they dropped to visit Preston.
I visited Fishergate Shopping Centre in Preston yesterday for a girlie day out with my sister. We 'shopped till we dropped' so to speak and I eventually returned home with an extremely light purse.
Every thing that you could possibly want from a shopping centre is here and there is no trudging about in the rain or cold.
It is next to the main railway station so handy if you go by train but if you are traveling in a car like we were then you come off of the M6 at junction 31 and follow the ring road towards the railway station there are plenty of signs for Fishergate as well so you cant get lost.
The car park is large with plenty of cctv cameras about so you don't have to worry about your vehicle getting stolen or broken into.
I went back to our car three times during the day to deposit shopping in the boot and I noticed that there were plenty of spaces for everyone all day long.
Toilet facilities were excellent and extremely clean, I didn't have to queue.......now that doesn't happen very often!
T K Maxx, T J Hughes, Debenhams, and Primark are a few of the larger stores in this centre but they do have a lot of smaller shops like Clinton Cards, Bay Trading, and my favorite shop for hubbies clothes The Officers Club.
There are plenty of cafes and restaurants to choose from we opted for Starbucks for our lunch because I am an addict for their cappuccino.
Opening hours for The Fishergate Centre are, Monday to Friday 9.00 - 5.30, Saturday 9.00 - 6.00,
And Sunday 11.00 - 5.00.
Late night shopping until 8.00pm on a Wednesday.
I noticed quite a few plants and small trees around the centre which I thought was quite nice, and apparently they do plant at least one tree a year within the grounds.
This is a nice shopping centre for a trip out but take your card because we found some really good bargains and just could not resist.
