Top shopping experiences in Belfast

  1. Victoria Square shopping centre is in the very centre of Belfast. Its vast glass dome houses the ever-popular Topshop plus British labels Ted Baker and Superdry. You’ll also find a House of Fraser department store.

 

  1. Design fans will want to head to Craft & Design Collective in Belfast. A collection of 125 artists based in College Street, it sells their work, including jewellery, prints, textiles and ceramics.

 

  1. Aunt Sandra’s Candy Factory on the Castlereagh Road is an institution; it’s been selling its handmade chocolate and confectionery to Belfast children (and their parents) since the 1950s – you can even see the boiled sweets being made.

 

  1. The Lisburn Road is Belfast’s premier shopping district with more than 100 shops, boutiques, restaurants, cafes and businesses and is without doubt the place to go in Belfast for quirky, independent shops.

 

  1. Lisburn Road is also home to Belfast's signature delicatessen, The Arcadia, which has been trading from the same shop since 1933. The Arcadia prides itself on being a showcase for the very best in local artisan food and they create luxury hampers for that special Belfast gift.

 

  1. Belleek china – a favourite of collectors – is still made near the town of Enniskillen in County Fermanagh, a 2-hour drive from Belfast, where you can tour the pottery.
