The MetQuarter is in an ideal location for all public transport, and routes to other shopping centres like Liverpool ONE. The MetQuartar's building was previously served as Liverpool's General Post Office. The building was severely damaged in the May Blitz of 1941. As you can imagine the site wasn't so luxurious.
In recent years the MetQuarter has had a refurbishment of £100 million being transformed into a 160,000 sq ft leisure and retail centre. Their vision is to deliver luxury retail and premium restaurants, and to transform the area into a brighter, more vibrant new place to spend your time with friends and families.
If the luxury high end shops are what you are after you're going to be more than happy wondering around this building.
