Shopping in Bolton

Bolton’s not only famous for its award winning market but also for its great range of shops which are a mix or traditional and modern, and testament to its colourful legacy as a traditional market town.

You can expect welcoming streets and shopping centres with a great choice of all your favourite high street names in the town centre.

Market Place Shopping Centre combines a mix of unique independent stores and well-known brands with names including Zara, H&M, Next, Debenhams and River Island with cafes, coffee shops and great parking. Crompton Place Shopping Centre also has over 40 high street stores including Primark, BHS and New Look and a number of specialist shops. The Market Place is under new ownership with some exciting development planned, including new restaurants and a nine screen cinema with a 1,200 seat capacity.

There are also many smaller independent retailer shopping centres around the town centre that provide an opportunity to pick up something unique.

Don't forget that getting around the town centre is easy, with good bus and train links including a free Metroshuttle bus which calls at the rail and bus stations and other key town centre locations.

For a traditional shopping experience with great value and choice Bolton Market offers an unrivalled experience right in the heart of the town centre. Where else could you combine over 300 stalls across an indoor and outdoor location with everything from fresh food and exotic fruit and veg, to locally sourced meats and cheeses to the region's best outlet for fresh fish.

Bolton Market had a £4.5 multi-million redevelopment creating a lifestyle hall, complete with fantastic indoor food stalls and an informal seating area. Don't forget to drop in for some inspiration and new treats.

Middlebrook Retail and Leisure Park is a few miles from Bolton town centre and has over 60 retail stores and restaurants including high street names such as River Island, Next, Laura Ashley, Chiquitos and Bella Italia. With a 12 screen Vue Cinema and Hollywood Bowl, it's a great day out for all the family.
