Westgate Shopping Centre Southampton

Westgate Shopping Centre Southampton

Shopaholics are well catered for in Southampton with a huge selection of shops in large shopping centres and the area around Bargate. Southampton is Hampshire's largest shopping centre and caters for every taste from high street and designer to vintage and alternative. The city also has a host of great pubs, cafes and world cuisine restaurants.

Shopping

Above Bar (that is above Bargate) is where you'll find several shopping centres with the modern West Quay Shopping Centre dominating them all. West Quay contains department stores and an extensive choice of favourite high street outlets across two floors under a glazed cover as well as a separate Food Terrace. Next to West Quay is The Marlands with an array of niche and familiar high street retailers, some great unique fashion stores and a choice of food and restaurant outlets.

Around the back at Arundel Circus is a walkway leading you down to Southampton's historic town walls and facing Arundel Tower. This space is also where the Spa Gardens fountain and botanical gardens once stood and where Jane Austen and her family took their daily walk. Just next to the Bargate monument is the Bargate Shopping Centre. It houses various specialist retail outlets including alternative and outdoor clothing shops, a cycle shop as well as an internet cafe and comedy club. Between these and the shops on East Street, Bedford Place and Above Bar Street and stretching up towards the university, you will find a huge range of shops, pubs, cafes and eateries.

Markets

Bargate is the location for several markets held in Southampton's city centre. Every Friday is the general market from 9am-5pm. Around 90 stalls offer all kinds of produce from fruit and veg, organic and local produce, and specialists food from across Europe. Every Saturday in the month there's a different market at Bargate with the Arts and Design market on the first Saturday showcasing individually designed and original art work as well as new and vintage designer wear. Antiques and collectables are on the third Saturday of every month and farmers' markets are held on the second and fourth Saturdays. On Sundays it's the World Market with a wide range of goods from all over the world.
