Lakeside Shopping Centre

By: Rex Inego | Apr 27, 2009 05:46 AM

This Shopping Centre at West Thurrock Essex is just towards the eastern boundary of London. On a swarming 200 acres of land, it has several shops with department stores, restaurants and 33 cafes. Apart from that there is a lake named Alexandra which stands on 26 acres with a diving school. About 500,000 visitors visit this Lakeside per week. The centre has a large and spacious car parking facility where you can park about 14, 000 cars and multi-store car park is also available for the peak hours of the day.

This shopping centre has direct link towards the railway station, to M25 motorway and to the road which connects the east London. With myriad ranges, this place is a pleasure to visit. The new development of this shopping centre is its new lighting, flooring, ceiling and the glass roofs which add an extra gleam to the complex. The centre has also introduced faster lifts and 4 escalators. The Lakeside area is connected to the shopping centre which gives a market look. There are many stalls selling paintings, novelty gifts and a small food stall.

A few meters from here, you are gifted with the splendid view of lake Alexandra. The Orleans bar with restaurant was also opened. A special feature of this is that it has a rooftop bar. What more, Apple has opened it's tenth store in the UK here. The old Lakeside has a Vue cinema with seven screens. The stadium has reclinable armchairs and a special screen for music, gaming events and key films.

Pros: Has large car park All under one roof

cons: You should be prepared to spend a lot of money. I call it as a shoppers paradise because it has a wide range of collection.

conclusion: It was a wonderful day out and I let my hair down after a days hard work. But mind that purse of yours, because you're sure to spend more than you intend to!
