Newcastle is a great place to shop. Many shopping centers in the city center sell all the latest designer fashion.
The biggest shopping center is the Eldon Square Shopping Centre which has the largest Fenwick department store in the UK, a huge John Lewis store and Marks & Spencer.
There are many transport links from around the town that all lead to the Eldon Square Shopping Centre. If you are after the latest in trends or just new gifts and ideas there is something to be found to match your taste at this center.
At present, there is a major development going on to refurbish the Eldon Square Shopping Centre to house a new bus station and replace the older concrete floor with new materials.
Northumberland Street is the main street for shopping; it has in the past been ranked as the most expensive place for shops to rent their premises outside of London.
Nearby in Gateshead, there is one of the largest indoor shopping centres in Europe, the MetroCentre.
