    Me too...love the Trafford Centre. It's not my local one what with the new Liverpool One district but still prefer the TC as has free parking and plenty of places to dine.

    Guess Brighton is our local shopping centre. I don't mind it. There's pretty much everything I need there - including Borders with a Starbucks in it.

    I try not to go there on a weekend though. It's just annoying. Especially at this time of year. :mad:

    I'm Keith, and I'm a Trafford Centre addict.

    well I've always been a shopaholic soooooo no surprise that I love the trafford centre. Plus it has an apple store :D

    I wish there were a few less designer clothes stores though

    My nearest big shopping 'area' is Reading - but that's really half mall half outside pedestrianised High Street.

    Do occasionally venture across London to Lakeside at Thurrock or Bluewater but that's out of habit from when Lakeside was the one of the only really big 'shopping centres' around.

    As long as it has a Disney Store and a Build a Bear I am happy :D

    Went to Lakeside once to do our Christmas shopping and me and Adrian practically came to blows as we got so stressed with the crowds and the size of the place.

    Never been to Bluewater. Will I have to drive over the big bridge to get there?

    Hmm not sure It's very near the Dartford crossing, but could well be your side of it.

    I did the Metro Centre once when we visited DH's family. That was quite big. Other than that I like Southampton's West Quay.

    Oooh I was quite impressed with Plymouth. Bit of a trek just for a Starbucks though.
