Great place to come alone or with a family. Many places to eat and many shops can never go home without buying something. Open late night every night too.

My family still live here in our hometown of Newcastle. I visit the Metro Centre on a daily basis whilst im here visiting! So many shops to choose from and the added bonus of free parking which these days is unheard of!! I wish Bournemouth had a shopping centre like this!! The car park can be a nightmare in busy...

I always park in the coach carpark. You then cross over the railway line, pass the main bus area, past some handy cashpoints (free) and you.re in. I.m no great shopper, rarely stop for a bite to eat. If you know what you want, great ... if not beware - you.ll be tempted to fritter your cash away. It.s always... More

This is a great shopping centre, very big and spacious. Having a bit of work doing to it but will look even better once completed. The village is a nice lovely area as well. This is the 2nd time I've been the 1st time was when I was younger.

We visit this centre on several occasions each year, and we are never disappointed. The centre is clean and bright and contains every kind of store you can think of. In addition there are many coffee houses, fast food outlets, and restaurants. Add to this plenty of free parking and you cannot fail to be impressed with this indoor shopping... More

1st visit in over 15 yrs, this place is massive with a good selection of shops. It's clean, well maintained. So big! We didn't walk around it all but seen the shops we wanted to before heading off. There is a wee bus station outside and a free phone taxi service which we used and was handy.

The metro centre has steadily declined in its customer appeal on my opinion and now the only thin that lures me is free parking. The shops are constantly closing, and more and more restaurants take their place. Obviously it's nice on a cold or wet day to be inside, but I find I can't always get what I want. There's... More
