We live a few miles outside of Milton Keynes but this is the best shopping centre around. There's always something going on and if you have kids then the school holidays are a great time to visit. During the summer months they always have a beach in the main square and Xmas is almost magical here with a huge Santa... More

We live 35 miles away and I would say that The Centre:MK is the best shopping centre for choice we can get to within that distance. There's over 200 shops and all the big department stores are there plus dozens of smaller chains all on one floor. I have a couple of gripes now though, the cost of parking has... More

Not on the level of Westfield or Bluewater, but it's ok. When all the shops are occupied it's great, when there's a few going begging it feels a bit rubbish. This shopping centre goes in circles or popular areas, depending what shops are occupying the different areas. Worth a visit. Carole : |

A bit worn down! But plenty of shops to visit! Something for everyone one! From M&S, to yours, to bear factory! Always clean and tidy and bright (natural) and airy! Staff always pleasant and polite! And lots of other places to visit that are just a stones throw away from the shopping centre, such as campbell Park, the canal, xscape... More

Not the first time I have been here, they provide a lot of different shops ranging from fashion to food, also it's very accessible for people with limited mobility as it's all on one floor. Well worth a visit.

Having not been there for at least 10 years, we decided to break up a return journey with a stop here. It was a cold overcast day with drizzle and we were looking forward to a place where we could walk around under cover in comfort and get a bite to eat. We managed the second wish at Carluccios, shame... More

So Milton Keynes is 50 years old! This shopping centre is so spread out it's hard to get any flow. I'm sure when it was built it was amazing but as with everything, new centres open up improved. I think it's shocking to charge people to park. Bluewater in Kent is far nicer and it's free to park. The zones... More
