Make your Christmas shopping magical this year; hire one of our luxury limos and put together a tour of the most exciting and festive shopping destinations around Manchester!
Our chauffer-driven service takes all the stress out of your Christmas shopping excursion. You won’t have to worry about routes, traffic or parking. Enjoy comfortable luxury seating, stunning lights, a fantastic sound system, LCD screens and arrive at your destination in style!
Limo-Scene covers all the major shopping destinations in the area, but here are a few of the best and most Christmassy:
Boasting 145 high street and designer stores, Cheshire Oaks have gone all-out to create a winter wonderland for shoppers. You’ll find a pretty Christmas market with stalls clustered around the giant Christmas tree, selling everything from handmade gifts and decorations to tempting food and drink. You can also have your photo taken inside the oversize snow globe!
Around 15 and a half miles from Manchester, Crompton Place is a great destination to hunt for Christmas gifts! With over 40 shops, including Beaverbrooks Jewellers, The Fragrance Shop and Games Workshop to name a few, Crompton Place is worth a stop.
Located in Denton, Crownpoint offers a selection of favourite high street shops such as H&M, BHS, Tesco Homeplus, Dorothy Perkins, JD Sports and M&S Outlet.
Your Christmas shopping haul wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Trafford Centre. Why not take a break from shopping to go skating on Selfridge’s ice rink? If you’ve got little ones with you, they won’t want to miss The Snowman and The Snowdog Christmas Grotto. There are over 200 shops to explore and plenty of eateries to suit every taste.
Hailed as “the centre of everything!” Manchester Arndale is situated in the centre of Manchester with over 200 retailers including fashion giants such as Topshop/Topman, River Island and Nike, not to mention the world’s largest Next store.
Soak up the festive atmosphere in style whilst you shop. Bolton Marketplace is holding a New York style funfair for shoppers during the whole of the holiday season. Rides are only £1 each, and there’s a host of naughty American-inspired fairground food to try including curly fries, hotdogs, pretzels, burgers, nachos, pancakes and donuts!
Millgate is a great place to visit for anyone stuck for present ideas or for those with someone tricky-to-buy-for on their gift list.
Millgate hosts a speciality Christmas market each weekend in the run up to Christmas. And with a long list of both major high street and unique independent outlets, you won’t have to browse for long before you find some inspiration!
On top of the The Rock’s usual offering of more than 50 stores, 12 cafes and restaurants, a 10 screen cinema, gym and bowling alley, you’ll find Christmas treats including Santa’s grotto, a giant advent calendar revealing discounts and offers each day, a German swing grill a creperie and Christmas bands playing every evening throughout December.
