Me and my friend decided to try supreme nails in the metro centre, our nails are all odd sizes and the nail varnish is shocking, also the attitude of the staff were horrendous to each other! We will be sticking to Hollywood nails from now on.

I've been shopping here on many an occasion but felt overwhelmed this time with my young children in between going into shops, there were far too many different companies trying to sell me things from photo shoots to digi boxies etc. It happened several times and really started to frighten my children. As if the place isn't busy enough in... More

I probably visit here far too much as it has everything under one roof! The shops are great and there is a wide selection of places to grab a coffee or something to eat. The public facilities are clean and well maintained. The mall itself is also very clean and well kept. My daughter likes the little train which goes... More

Brilliant and huge shopping centre with all the major shopping chains as well as lots of individual shops, cafes and restaurants. Could easily spend all day here especially as it has a large multi screen cinema and bowling alley.

How can anyone not like this place? It's has everything you could possibly need under one roof. Various types of food in different restaurants, a cinema, bowling, an arcade, it even had metroland! I've never been into a single shop or restaurant and had a problem with any staff, maybe I'm just lucky? As for people getting lost, it's quite... More

This place does not need selling to anyone who likes shopping or travelling with someone who likes shopping. A great variety and range of shops and eating places to to suit all pockets. You can easily spend all day here but you will be tired out. Plenty of free parking and everything is well signposted.

We called into The Metro Centre for the first time and found it to be very similar to huge malls elsewhere in the UK. Having said that, it's not a negative. Everything under one roof and certainly in House of Fraser, we found huge choice and genuine sales. The coloured mall names made it very easy to navigate, so we'd... More
