Shopping and fashion

Shopping holidays combine the exhilaration of a city break with the thrill of splashing out on bits and pieces that take your fancy. In other words, they’re brilliant. England’s cities possess a tempting mix of posh department stores, quirky vintage and independent shops and high-street fashion brands that lead the world. Shopping breaks also mean some sightseeing, lunching in fine style and recuperating with a cocktail. Don’t forget to look up: often a city’s shopping district is based in its historic centre where the buildings are as beautiful and awe-inspiring as the shiny goods they house.
