Been years since we've been here, crikey how its grown, or at least it seems that way! Just a huge range of shops and eating places, good for just walking around. Worked hard at keeping my wife out of the shops!!! We got a parking space very close, think we were lucky at about mid-day on a Saturday. By the... More

Lots of shops for all the family. Nice food places and a big cinema. You can spend the day here if you wanted. Indoor shopping so ideal in the bad weather.

Visit for a great shopping experience. You can drive direct as there are plenty of parking spaces though at weekends especially, they fill up early on. Geordies are early shoppers! There is also a speedy shuttle bus to and from Newcastle city centre to the Metro Centre, very reasonably priced. Plenty of choice for food and comfort breaks.

A huge shopping mall with every conceivable type of shop and restaurant. We were amazed that we had over six hours there. Definitely worth a visit

Regardless of which sources you believe, The MetroCentre is one of the three biggest shopping centres in the UK by leasable retail area. More impressively, it boasts the most individual retail outlets (340) of any UK shopping centre. Personally, I think having a greater variety of establishments is much more important than boasting fewer massive shops which is why I... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our shopping trip here! There is something for everyone, free parking also! Lots and lots of places to eat inside and out. The only bad points were it was quite warm inside and the queues were terrible, but to be expected in late December. Will def re-visit.

Went here one evening whilst working in the Area. Traffic situation is a bit confusing to get in and out, but this could have been due to the large roadworks in the surrounding area. The car parking in the multi story was free, which is nice compared to some other towns etc. My overall impression was that it is a... More
