Shopping Mall Shopping
With hundreds of different stores, intu Trafford Centre is the second largest shopping center in the United Kingdom. It also houses the UK's busiest cinema and Europe's largest food court. The mall features an unorthodox style of architecture--it's definitely not a generic shopping mall! The 1930s-themed, 1,600-seat eating area, incorporates designs from China, New Orleans, Egypt, and Italy. There are four main areas located across two floors: Peel Avenue, Regent Crescent, The Dome, and The Orient. The design allows equal access for visitors from both sides of the mall.

  • Great food court, loads of entertainment facilities. Parking is good and there's plenty of it. Shops are modern, clean, well lit. It's a very linear design, so there is a lot of walking involved. Reasonable range of shops. The only issue I have is that this shopping mall caters for the extremely wealthy of Manchester and its surroundings. It's a very high class range of designer shops. There are other shops such as H&M, but proportionally it's 9 designer shops to 1 regular high street brand. Enjoy the food, window shop at the designer shops, and spot all the WAGS.
  • Clean safe and lots to choose from. All kinds of activities within and nearby. Ample parking and not overly crowded, but still very busy (which is what I like). Decor is historic, tropical cultural and modern depending on which area of the building you stand in. Go back to the blues era when you walk through New Orleans or trod through the ancient orient with food smells that take you across the world. One of my favourite shopping centres in the world, with the formula just right!
  • Amazing building and architecture. Has everything you need for a great night out for couples or family's. (Cinema, indoor mini golf, bowling etc.) The shopping centre has a vast amount of shops but do tend to be up market, so don't expect many bargains! Most cuisines available and some you may not have experienced. I could go on but it is place to discover yourselves.
  • Wow what a shopping centre. What can I say it took my breath away. From fountains to marble statues and a restaurant concourse that looks like the deck of a cruise liner. Wonderful. If you're looking for a great lunch can recommend Pesto. Italian style tapas sized food. Don't order any more than 3 dishes each as they are really filling. A great way to sample lots of different dishes.
  • A stunning shopping centre, the architecture and the chandelier when you walk in is stunning. The venetian themed food court area has amazing variety and is stunning to look at too. Great place to go eat, shop or do activities. There is a bowling alley with arcade, laser centre, mini golf and cinema. The only downside about this place is its so popular that it's too busy. Parking is difficult although free and there are queues everywhere!
