Something for everyone…
We offer a superb mix of retail, leisure and other attractions.
The Arcades Shopping Centre
currently offers 165,000 square feet of high quality retail space with over 500 parking spaces on its own award winning car park. Planning approval has been granted to more than double the centre in size which will attract even more great high street names to Ashton.
The Ladysmith Shopping Centre
With over 45 shops, cafés and specialist services spread over three bright, airy and spacious malls, Ladysmith is the ultimate local shopping centre. Top fashion brands such as Top Girl, Top Man, Dorothy Perkins and Burtons rub shoulders with other household names such as Boots and JD Sports, whilst our wide range of food and drink outlets offer shoppers the chance to relax and catch up with friends and family.
Ashton also offers not one but two thriving markets.
Ashton Market is one of the best outdoor markets in the country, with 140 stalls filled seven days a week.
Whilst our tremendous Indoor Market offers a range of fresh foods and produce to tempt you.Plus on the last Sunday of every month (except December) we hold the largest monthly FARMERS AND PRODUCERS MARKET in the north west, where everything offered for sale has either been grown or made by the people selling it!
The `Old Town`…
This area developed during Victorian times and now features a wide variety of specialist shops and independent stores offering a delightful range of items, complimenting the national multiples. It has benefited from Conservation and Commercial Improvement Area Grants, which have helped retailers to retain the traditional Victorian style shopfronts.
