Love this place but no decent restaurants

I come to the Metrocentre quite regularly. It is for any shopaholic. But if you're a fan of decent food you will struggle to find anything here to suit your taste and preferences... read more

Its the usual modern clinical shopping malls with a retail park of concrete boxes alongside If you like shopping this may be heaven to you if you hate walking in an enclosed area this is not for you. These shopping mall areas lack the atmosphere of the high street only serving the purpose of everything under one roof.

Visited over the weekend with family and left a bit disappointed. The MetroCentre is huge and does have a lot of shops, however none that really stand out - just many of the usual shops that you would find along most high streets. I enjoyed Bluewater Shopping Centre and Westfield at Stratford better. The MetroCentre does feel slightly tired and... More

This is a whole day event so unless you have at least 4 hours don't even think you will see it all... Great place although you will spend a fortune and go a little crazy.. Definitely going... More

I come to the Metrocentre quite regularly. It is for any shopaholic. But if you're a fan of decent food you will struggle to find anything here to suit your taste and preferences it is okay for a snack or a coffee. But would highly recommend for shopping

As far as shopping experiences go this is one of our favourites, we particularly liked this because all the shops are not occupied by multi nationals, there is a large amount of the smaller retailers and independents. We wish them all good luck and thank them and the management for many good experiences.

the MetroCentre is a great place to visit. there is easy access by train, car and busses. apart from the obvious shopping expedition there's loads of restaurants, a champagne bar, and a train ride around the centre. During school holidays there is usually entertainment for the kids and the weather cannot spoil things as it is all indoors. it's a... More

There are a wide selection of shops. The centre also has plenty of restaurants, cinema and bowling alley. There is ample free parking, as well as good public transport links.
