The Best Shopping Locations for Boxing Day Sales

Christmas bags and boxes with a word SaleYou’d think that we’d have had enough of shopping after the Christmas rush. Dashing around the shops looking for that last present for your teenage daughter or the right tie for Great Uncle Ted can be stressful at the best of times, but when everyone in the world is doing the same – it can be a nightmare.

But Boxing Day sees some of the best deals and sales in the country and often we just can’t seem to resist hitting the high street one more time before the long month of January settles in and brings us all back down to earth. Whether it’s a new sofa, a swanky TV or just some new threads, Boxing Day is the ideal time to pick up a snip.

So with that in mind, here are some of the best shopping destinations in the UK for you to bag a Boxing Day bargain!


Starting with the obvious, London has a fantastic range of shops from everyone’s favourite high street names to designer labels and electronics. Whether it’s one of the Westfield shopping centres, Oxford Street, Carnaby Street or any of the other, smaller streets filled with independent retailers and boutiques – there really is something for everyone.

Why not stay over in one of our London hotels and enjoy a well-earned drink and some dinner after a hard day’s retail therapy?


An all-together more elegant experience, Bath is a shopping trip, romantic getaway and a walk down memory lane all rolled into one. Once a destination for the rich and famous, it still boasts a number of posh boutique shops, luxury spas and swanky restaurants.

With a vibrant high street and the indulgent architecture and history only Bath can offer, this is a one of a kind Boxing Day shopping trip. Check out one of our Bath hotels if you want to take full advantage of this beautiful city.


A gem nestled in the north of England, Newcastle is a fun, friendly city that is ideal for a shopping trip any time of the year – let alone a Boxing Day bonanza!

Full of culture, streets full of your favourite brands, more theatres per person than any other city in the UK and locals that will make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive – Newcastle is the ultimate package.

The Gateshead Metrocentre is jam-packed with shops from well known names to designer labels while the likes of High Bridge, where you’ll find boutiques galore and the Armstrong Bridge Market, means you’re sure to a special something for your special someone.

Our Newcastle hotels offer the ideal place to base yourself as you discover why everyone who visits the Toon, vows to return time and time again!
