  • Good selection of shops. Easy to get to on public transport. Decent opening hours and reasonable facilities. Has all you need from a town center shopping centre.
  • Good covered shopping centre. When combined with the more modern Centrale centre opposite makes Croydon a leading place for shopping with a wide and varied choice of retail outlets. Parking is conveniently adjacent but expensive as is the case throughout the town. Notwithstanding the above, given the choice, I would always choose to drive 20 miles further in the opposite direction, to Guildford, for a more pleasant, less cosmopolitan environment.
  • Decent space but could do with better lighting and a slight facelift. Needs more outlets as several are now closed and give a dull image to the shopping centre. More emphasis on upper floors too.
  • Big shopping mall. Good food and easy to find shops . We always do our shopping there. One place for all.
  • The Whitgift Centre is preparing to close and there are signs of this. Many shops stand empty with "Short Let" in their windows. However, still plenty of shopping to be done and lots of people around. For your interest, bathrooms are up on the top (2nd) floor and you can use the stairs, the escalators or a lift (hidden). Parking for the Whitgift is in one of the surrounding car parks - it can be tricky and busy. Within the Whitgift and along the adjoining High Street, there are many places to eat, buy clothes & shoes, pick up electricals & household things, as well as standard grocery shopping and banking.
