Alternatively, the largest urban shopping centre in Europe, Westfield shopping centre, Stratford, is just 17 minutes away on the Jubilee line, with over 2 million square feet dedicated to retail and fun: dynamic brands, high street names, leisure and an excellent international dining experience, all under one roof.
For something a little different, hop on a train to Greenwich Market and spend a morning or afternoon browsing for gifts, admiring the variety of crafts and sampling the delights of delicious street food.
For fresh, organic food and drink, head to Borough Market. Spitalfields and Shoreditch’s fascinating pop-up shops and trendy restaurants are worth visiting as is the bustling Whitechapel market, where you’ll find a selection of exotic Asian fruit and vegetables.
Recently renovated and extensively refurbished, this modern retail and dining (indoor and outdoor) venue is popular with the growing, affluent local catchment. Improved public spaces around the centre and enhanced connectivity across the site, for pedestrians and cyclists are added attractions. With frequent connections from Surrey Quays and Canada Water tube and bus stations, getting here is easy.
In the words of David Pollock, Retail Development Manager for British Land “The extension and refurbishment created additional space, allowing us to attract and accommodate new and exciting retailers and to ensure that Surrey Quays remains competitive in today’s market.
The current shopping experience is significantly improved for both existing and new customers.”
