There is plenty of shops at the Metro Centre. Even cinema, bowling alley and plenty of restaurants. Much better selection since new restaurants open. The centre is clean and there are plenty of baby changing facilities. Parking is free. Even easier to get to the Metro Centre now the roadworks have finished.

This is a very clean and relaxing place. As you can sit down and have a nice relax after you have had a good family bowling session or a blockbuster.

Nothing special, not nearly as good as it once was. Suprisingly quite a few empty units and looked a bit run down. Information points were out of order and maps could only seem to be found at a few random points across the centre.

the metrocentre is a shoppers paradise, big, clean, friendly and is so spacious that it houses thousands of people, with free parking but you must get there early as it is very popular with locals. You can spend the whole day all under one roof, plenty of restaurants, pubs to eat and drink but there only one tip : remember... More

Free parking is a bonus. Varied shops suits most people. Cinema, play area. Whenever we go we make a day of it. Out can get eye tests, shop have a meal or snack drinks at the champagne bar then off to the pictures. All under cover so can be used in all weathers.

A great selection of shops, indoors and with free car parking. There's a few shops you won't find in Newcastle such as Zara. There's also a huge selection of restaurants. A perfect shopping trip
