Shopping

Facilities image

The city centre hosts an eclectic mix of independent boutiques, vintage shops, high street brands and grocery stores… all on HSAD’s doorstep.

Fancy some retail therapy? Spend the day at St Stephen’s leisure complex, where you will find all of the favourite high street brands including River Island, Topshop, H&M, and New Look. Grab a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants, or for the more energetic, defy gravity at the brand new trampoline park. The leisure complex is also home to a cinema, gym, laser tag arena and bowling alley.

Princes Quay, the first shopping centre in the UK to bring outlet and high street stores under one roof, has four floors of shops, restaurants and leisure facilities. The brand new pioneering outlet deck includes Next, Sole Trader and Ben Sherman stores with items at a fraction of the high street price… a bargain hunter’s galore!

Spanning over numerous high streets, the city’s shopping area offers a wide range of products including clothes, shoes, jewellery, games, toys and books. Find something special at department stores such as Debenhams and House of Fraser, or dig out a bargain at one of the many discount stores.

There are also city centre grocery stores within walking distance of campus, including a Sainsbury’s local, Tesco express, Iceland and Heron Foods.

Looking for something a bit different?

Visit Paragon Arcade and Magpie’s Den for one-off vintage treasures, or Beasley’s and Chinese Laundry for something unique, not forgetting Poorboy Boutique on Humber Street. The Grade II listed Hepworth Arcade is known for local, independent stores and over a century ago Mr Marks and Mr Spencer opened one of their first penny bazaars in the passageway.

Don’t fancy the hustle and bustle of the city centre? There are ample retail parks on the outskirts of town, with everything from homeware to car repair.
