Radisson Blu Hotel Manchester Airport


The Trafford Centre, city centre and more

When planning shopping breaks to Manchester, choosing a hotel near the airport is a convenient alternative to staying near the city centre. Whether you arrive by plane, train or car, our contemporary Manchester Airport hotel offers easy access to the Trafford Centre and Manchester’s shopping districts.

Retail therapy in the North

Manchester’s premier shopping destination, the Trafford Centre, provides all the luxuries of a shopping break in one place. It boasts nearly 300 stores, a multiplex cinema and an entertainment square, as well as regular live music performances. Whether you are after luxury buys, new holiday clothes or some classic retail therapy, you will have a great day out here (the food court is fantastic, too).

The city centre is also home to a great variety of shops. Beautiful Deansgate, Manchester’s main shopping district, boasts high-end designer stores including Armani, Hermes and DKNY. The well-known Arndale Centre is home to all the best high-street names. In fact, it’s the largest city centre shopping centre in the UK. Browse fashion favourites such as Topman and Topshop, as well as the world’s largest Next store. There’s a great range of shops for homewares and gadgets too. 

Vintage shopping in Manchester

If you prefer hunting for unique finds, take a trip to Affleck’s – a vintage emporium full of treats. Based in the Northern Quarter, this treasure trove sells everything from rare clothing to handmade jewellery, and even pick ‘n’ mix. This area of Manchester is full of independent boutiques, pop-up stores and cool coffee shops, all worth exploring.

Relaxing post-shop

After a full day of hitting the shops, you can unwind at the hotel. Relax with an indulgent treatment in the revitalizing Beauty Lounge, or refuel with a delicious meal at the impressive Collage Restaurant. Enjoy a peaceful night's sleep in your chic room and awake refreshed, ready for your onward journey.
