Everybody loves a bargain and our vibrant city centre has a great mix of quality specialist boutiques, the big names you’d expect plus indoor, seasonal and farmers markets.
The Bridges indoor shopping centre is at the heart of Sunderland and has over 90 high street stores, plenty of parking and easy access by public transport.
Sunderland’s also got a great choice of locally owned stores. Park Lane Shopping Village is the place to go for independent and individual while Jacky Whites Market is hard to beat when it comes to value.
They're all in a compact and easily accessible area, with great choice, value and service and of course plenty of places to stop for something to eat and drink.
