Spent a whole day in the metrocentre. So many shops and eateries. Only complaint I have is lack of maps as this mall is so big and can get quite disorientating with the different colour zones But overall a great place.

Fantastic place, everything you need under one massive roof. Xmas decorations out of this world. Kids loved our time there. They loved the bungee trampolines & Christmas train 🚂 plenty to do, plenty places to eat/ have coffee ☕️ etc... shops were just lovely 😊

Excellent shopping mall. So many shops to choose from under 1 roof. You could easily spend a whole day here! Great transport connections too! Can't wait to return

If you love shopping then this is the place for you. A huge shopping centre with free parking with a retail park next door. Make sure you see where you park or you'll have trouble finding your car when you come out. It is the same thing when you go in as the place is divided into coloured zones, blue,... More

Visited with my wheelchair bound sister for some odds and ends of Christmas shopping that we still needed. Visited at 10 am when it was opening as I feel this is the best time to visit before it gets too busy. The centre is continually being improved and upgraded but this does not detract from the shopping experience. There is... More

Recently visited the Metro Centre to Christmas shop. Christmas lights and decor tasteful. Parking car was no problem plenty spaces. Pleased with the earlier 9am opening too. Plenty clean baby changing facilities and wide for pushing pram. However, some of the stores are less easy to navigate with a pram with their layouts e.g Boux Avenue.

Probably my favourite shopping destination. Great range of shops; I'm generally disappointed if I don't come away with a fair bit less money. Dining facilities are also great. The centre is easily accessible by most means of transport.

The Gateshead Metrocentre is an excellent place to go shopping for clothes, electrical, banking or a meal. Free parking is an excellent advantage as well. Whatever the weather everything is under 1 roof. Buses & trains frequently arrive.

We had not been here for a Couple of years so we decided to take a drive and do some shopping. The place looks great after its refurbishment good shops and eateries. The place was clean and not to busy the day we visited. We managed to get all we wanted in a couple of hours before returning home.

I went to Zara looking for a leather jacket I had seen on the internet. The place was an absolute tip with clothes all over the floor and piled up on the stands. I needed the girl to go to the stock room to get a coat in my size - this took 10 min as the stock room is... More
