I don't know how people can't like the Trafford Centre some of the reviews actually made me laugh but that doesn't matter. I'm from Manchester myself and live minutes away from the Trafford Centre I'm in there literally every week it's great for whatever you need it's got all the big brands all in one place. It's also great for... More

Dreadful place, boring, regimented, rubbish parking, Have been to several of these Shopping centres, I refuse to call them malls, I don't live in USA, and this is far and away the worst, would not recommend to my worst enemy

Loads of free parking to start your day, well sign posted to arrive unstressed too. Full of great shops from the big names to some individual businesses. Plenty of eating places and I only explored about half of this place. Be careful you could spend a fortune.

Loved the Trafford Centre from the start. Not keen on the intu branding that appeared and the website isn't as good. Couldnt find a may anywhere and that's important for those of who don't shop there all the time. I appreciate the free parking but avoid going at holiday times due to queuing traffic, Christmas being the worst-the down side... More

Visited the Trafford Centre ever since it first opened and will say the free parking is one big main attraction. Lots of various big shops, sadly Selfridges not quite as good as it was (more concessions so sometimes the items you might have seen in the home section may not be there,a few months later as concession has gone). Really... More

I love the great selection of shops and variety of restaurants. It is also very family friendly with coupe cars to hire for toddlers, a Creche, small toilets, baby changing and a private breastfeeding room!

The Trafford Centre... is pretty much everything you'd want from a shopping centre. The overall decor is a tad on the posh perspective with plenty of marble, roman type columns and statues throughout. There's not exactly much you couldn't buy here if I'm totally honest as they have something for everyone. With it being one of the main shopping centres... More

I am a regular shopper here it has good shops and good restaurants! Could do with more lifts for prams though! And better nappy changing areas as they are so small !
