“Don't turn up too early!”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

We wanted to do a bit of shopping before we drove back home so got up from the hotel early and got to Westfield about 0845 thinking we'd have a coffee for when the shops open but they don't open until 1000 on weekdays. The coffee had to last a lot longer than we expected but we did have chance to scout out which shops we wanted to spend time in first.

“Ultimate shopping trip”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Excellent transport links from the city centre. The shopping centre itself is spacious, clean and nicely heated/air conditioned. There are a plethora of restaurants to choose from as well as cheap parking & accessible, spotless public restrooms. Great selection of high street stores as well as an interesting selection of fun stalls.
Tip:drop off your coats/extra bags at the concierge desk left luggage to improve shopping comfort.

“Could spend the whole day here!”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Vast complex well served by numerous tube stations and certainly on the scale of Trafford Center, Manchester, Metro Center, Gateshead or Meadowhall, Sheffield. All the major names are here and that's the only problem with this shopping center - it lacks variety.
However, assuming the major names are what has attracted you then you will not be disappointed.
Also on the plus side is an amazing food court (on three floors) covering everything from fast food (Mac's KFC etc) to specialty world cuisine (Indian, Caribbean, Vietnamese etc) and distinct restaurants (TGF, Giraffe etc). We selected Chicago Rib Shack and was not disappointed. Prices are not too bad at these places, a little higher than normal as you are a captive audience but this is London and a hot dog on the corner doesn't leave much change from a fiver).
For those who want full value there is also a VUE cinema in the complex and parking is a maximum of £5 for the full day. And you could easily spend a day in here there is that much to do.
However, if you exit to Stamford tube and go down the steps over the road is the Stamford Commercial center where prices are a lot cheaper. Not as big as Westfield but certainly worth a visit.

“Way worth the day spent here!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Easily accessible by a few tube stops. Numerous adorable restaurants inside and all along the outside facade. Extremely modern, clean, all known boutiques, a few department stores, and anything you could imagine. Also a huge cinema complex on top floor. Even features double 3D screens for some showings.

“Best shopping centre I have been to in london”
Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

A really great place to shop. Varied shops and entertainment. Really liked the fact that the Leicester square box office had a ticket stand there so we could purchase our tickets for a show, just hop on the tube a few stops and it really completed a full day out.
