There is so much to see and it is so very OTT in some ways (the décor), but in other ways it is very pretty. I think you need lots of money to shop there!!!!!!!!

Lots of shops here for the well heeled, you will notice lots of people walking round but not many have actually bought anything?? This us a bit of a posers paradise, the pinacle of people watchin! Hamleys has just opened here but if you have a buggy/disability/wheelchair the lift will only take one at a time and its really slow,... More

Apart from getting a couple of end of sale bargains, it was a normal day out in a large retail shopping center. Usual shops, usual food outlets too. It was quiet with being Monday but we could have been in any place from inside. Funfair downstairs on the Barton side, nice for the kids but as always you need deep... More

Although a lot of shops I loved have closed down and moved from the Trafford Centre (Model Zone, Men Kind, Red 5 etc.), there is still plenty of shops to choose from. The variety of food is excellent and the adventure Island golf is brilliant value, especially for students - overall a great place for a day out shopping.

Visited the Trafford Centre during a long weekend away. Very happy with the shops on offer, such as Selfridges, Dwell, Mr Simms (sweet shop) & the facilities, such as free parking, immaculate public lavatories & an extremely impressive food hall, designed like a cruise liner. The Lego Discovery Centre is situated within the complex. There is outdoor play equipment, an... More

Extremely disappointed after visiting the Trafford Centre a couple of weeks ago. It was filthy, the toilets stank - and we visited a few in order to find a decent one. The place in general looks very shabby and obviously in need of an overhaul. I'm not sure if they were having a problems with their air filtration system but... More

Enormous mall with quite a few luxury brands. Food, cinemas and everything you can think of. Upmarket. Out of town with plenty of free parking.

This must be the most attractively themed and decorated shopping centre I have ever visited - more like a theme park in many ways, with its New Orleans themed restaurant areas, fantastic plants and decorated friezes. If you want a different shopping experience, or even if you're not shopping, it's worth a visit!

Hello r0manmr, and thanks for your lovely review detailing our artworks, and architecture. We are a lot like a theme park, with a bit of that "Disney magic" thrown in - we believe that people who come to us want a bit of an escape from the norm, somewhere gorgeous to wander round in. Our fountains, statues and gold leaf... More
