Just west of Notting Hill and Kensington lies one of London’s best shopping experiences at the Westfield Shopping Centre at Shepherd’s Bush. This huge mall features over 300 shops and restaurants that offer the perfect mix of high street and high end shopping. When Westfield Shopping Centre opened in 2008, it was noted as one of the largest urban shopping centres in Europe, and is currently the 5th largest mall in the UK. It was the largest in London until Westfield Stratford City opened in east London in 2011. Numbers aside, this is one whirlwind of a shopping experience in London! Take a peek inside in this short video highlighting the mall’s features and design.
Whether you’re looking for your favorite London shops, international brands or some of the biggest names in fashion, you’ll find them all conveniently located under one roof (and a lovely glass one at that!) at the Westfield Shopping Centre. While most malls aim for an open feel, Westfield achieved it with spacious open courtyards and glass ceiling. Even when the rain pours down you can enjoy a day of shopping in London at Westfield!
The mall features over 50 places to eat, so you’ll find something for everyone’s taste while shopping. The mall is anchored by the large department stores Debenhams, a three-level Marks & Spencer, Dorothy Perkins, House of Fraser and Next. In between you’ll find the most popular London shops that you would see on Kensington High Street, Oxford Street, Piccadilly Circus and Regent Street – all under one roof! If you’re looking for high end shopping, visit The Village at Westfield Centre, a selection of over 40 luxury boutiques, including Dior, Burberry, Louis Vuitton, Versace, Tiffany & Co., Jimmy Choo, Prada and many more.
Westfield Shopping Centre is conveniently located on the Central Line of the London Underground just two stops west of Notting Hill Gate and only 10 minutes by train from the West End. Exit at the Shepherd’s Bush Tube station for easy access to the shopping mall.
