Liverpool ONE...ONE of a kind - ONE experience - number ONE

Advantages: Range of shops for everyone and every budget
Liverpool One is the must go place whenever I need a good shopping trip. Forget New York, Paris or Milan, Liverpool One should be made the shopping capital of the world, and there are plenty reasons why...
Liverpool One is situated in the heart of Liverpool's City Centre, so you are not far away from any of the train stations and motorways .Plus, it is easy to find, as there are plenty signs to point you in the right direction. On the short walk to Liverpool One, you pass quite a few shops on the way, my favourite part being the boutique centre part that is just "next door". Albert Dock is just a short walk from Liverpool One, which hosts a few lovely shops and cafes, as well as the stunning view on a summer's day. The Cavern Club is also nearby, which is worth a visit if you aren't from round Liverpool.
There is a large range of shops for everyone and every price range there. For the men, there is Fred Perry, Liverpool and Everton FC shops and many more. For the kids there are a few toy stores such as the Disney shop. I have saved the best till last: the shops for women. For the higher price range there are shops like Mango, Lipsy, All Saint and Karen Millen. For those on a budget there are Peacocks, New Look, Jane Norman, Primark and H&M. To eat there are a range of place to eat, no matter what your taste is, from Starbucks, Café Rouge, Nandos, Zizzi and Yo! Sushi.
Liverpool One is quite futuristic looking at it from a architectural point of view as it has quite a curvy design and structure, but in a way it looks like a sore thumb in the middle of all the other historical surrounding such as the Cavern Club and Albert Dock. Some of the shops are under cover, but if it is a rainy day, you will get quite wet, as many of the shops are outside without cover. I guess us shoppers will have to suffer!
I don't actually live in Liverpool, but I try and give Liverpool One a visit at least twice a year. There are quite a few hotels nearby, such as the new curvy shaped Hilton, Novotel and Albert Dock Premier Inn. (The further you stay away from the city centre, the cheaper the rooms are.)
I would definitely recommend this as a day out or even a weekend thing for those who don't live in Liverpool; every shopaholic should experience Liverpool One at least once.
Summary: The ultimate shopping trip for all you shopaholics
