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

This huge shopping centre boasts the usual mix of high street shops and is much like most other out of town retail offerings. However, it's a good place to shop on a rainy day and is ideal for anyone with mobility difficulties or young families with baby buggies. Its major advantage over town centres such as Newcastle is that parking... More

Best avoided on Saturdays as it can get extremely busy and parking after 11am is difficult, there is an excellent range of shops, everything you need, good choice of restaurants/fast food, plenty of clean toilets, nice airy spacious feel! One of the best large shopping centres in the UK by far!

Excellent wet weather place to visit. All the usual big name shops and restaurants in a spacious mall. Lovely decorations at Christmas time.

There is a shop for everyone here no matter what the age. There are lots of places to rest your feet as well along the way so don't worry. You have information points where staff will help you find which shops you need. It is always clean and tidy and there is always an event happening when you go. There... More

The Metro Centre is one of the best shopping centres in the UK. It is spacious and light and has most of the UK high street stores under one roof. There are plenty of coffee shops, restaurants, and fast food outlets as well as a cinema and an entertainment centre. Everywhere is clean and tidy and well signposted. It is... More
