If you live in London and are looking to snap up some bargains in the run up to Christmas, then the London Designer Outlet is the place for you.
The capital’s first outlet centre has recently opened in Wembley and as a Brent resident, of course I was going to check it out.
First off, the outlet is really easy to get to. It’s only a short walk from Wembley Park station, just head towards Wembley Stadium and follow the clear signs!
Stores that have already opened in the centre include Asics, Nike, Adidas, H&M, Gap and Superdry. In addition to the outlet stores, there’s also a great Cineworld, with 9 screens and lots of great places to grab a bite to eat, such as Wagamama, Nando’s and Pizza Express. Or if you just want to grab a quick coffee in between stores, you can always visit Starbucks, Cafe Nero or Costas.
I’ve also managed to buy some great items of clothing at a good discount. The outlet prices are great, with up to 70% off RRP. I really love the sportswear shops in particular, they’re really great value for money. I’ll definitely be going back for running kit. The Asics store is also holding a running club, so if you live in the area, just ask for more details in store.
I also have a Cineworld card, and really love this cinema. The screens are really well sized, and there are lots of places to grab dinner before or after showings. A great place for a Saturday night date! All the staff I’ve spoken to, both in the shops and in the cinema, have been really friendly and helpful and I hope that this will continue. The people who work there are a great credit to the outlet.
More brands are set to open stores in the near future, so there will be even more bargains to be had.
I think the London Designer Outlet is really worth a visit, especially at this time of the year. It’s really easy to get to and there’s a nice atmosphere around the place. You may want to stop by if you are going to a gig at Wembley Arena, which is only a walk or bus ride away or if you’re going to an event at the stadium. The new Brent civic centre has also recently opened nearby, so if you’re a resident, you can also pop into Wembley Library if you have a reading list to get through.
The retail outlets are open 9am-8pm Mon-Sat and 11-5pm on Sundays, with the Cineworld and restaurants open till late.
