Shopping Centre
“Westfield is only a 20 minute bus journey away from my residency and is fa antastic place to visit to shop the sales or seek the latest trends from high-end to high-street fashion. Grab a coffee or a bite to eat in the food hall area whilst you are there. If you have time, why not see a film at the cinema inside the shopping centre complex - keep an eye out for freebies and vouchers.”

Shopping Centre
“Just 10 mins walk away, this is one of the largest urban shopping centres in Europe! Shopping, eating, cinema and more... Everything from department stores like John Lewis to small shops. The quickest way there is via Stoneleigh Street. Keep walking west and you will get to steps up to a footbridge over the main road. Once over the footbridge, walk down steps the other side and you will see the entrance to M&S. Enter Westfield this way for the quick way in!! ”

Shopping Centre
“Around a 13 - 15 min walk from the property, Westfield is the first place you should visit upon staying in the area. Thousands of people weekly from all over the UK and abroad come to visit Westfield and experience what it has to offer.. Clothes stores, department stores, luxury brands, restaurants and various entertainment venues including a huge cinema are located there and the offering keeps growing. Always an event, fair or entertainment, celebrities regularly perform centre stage and there is always a good event switching the Christmas lights on usually with pop artists. A great day out, probably more so for the ladies. Lads, brace yourselves!”

Gastropub

“The Anglesea Arms is the best gastropub in the area, and recognised annually by the Michelin Best Pubs guide. You are bound to meet Brackenbury neighbours here, or at least their dogs who are always snoozing under the tables. Reserve for Sunday roast, or pop in for Monday BYOB steak night.”
