I bought my wedding cake toppers there today and I can't wait to use them. I could spend all day looking at every... More

This shop is dangerous, you may go bankrupt. I went here and bought many cute things and I had to really hold back. Its great as its full of small businesses, everyone was really friendly and it was a wonderful shopping experience.

I met my best friend for a coffee/lunch at the Handpicked Hall instead of our usual generic coffee shop. I was unsure, but now, this will be our venue! Lovely kitsch decor, baking in front of us, and a wonderful tea selection. And when I commented on being thankful for the gluten free selection (having chosen what turned out to... More

The Grand Arcade had become rather seedy with many of the shops given over to nightclubs and bars. Handpicked Hall is really helping to revive the arcade and the area. Numerous small businesses share the space providing tasty food and afternoon teas and a lovely array of quirky handmade items. It's a great place to buy a gift or to... More

What a delightful find in the centre of a vibrant, modern city. Everything about this shopping mall demonstrates hand made, considered creativity, with a nostalgic tea room to round off the visit.

We just have to keep returning to Handpicked Hall! Each time we go there is something new or improved. It's fantastic to see one of the old arcades being used and it's so great to be able to support so many local small businesses right in the city centre. It is about a 3 minute walk from the Primark at... More

Visited this amazing place today on a friend's recommendation. I had thought wrongly that the grand arcade was closed but this happily is not so! Handpicked Hall has everything you could possibly want for a wonderful shopping experience. A cosy tea shop, a food hall, Mexican food, many craft stalls, a hairdressing salon, a holistic massage therapist, beautician, and gifts... More
