“Clean Shopping Mall But Not Disabled Friendly.”
Reviewed 26 April 2013

We visited this Shopping Mall whist attending a show at the nearby theatre. The clean well stocked mall is extremely large and on one level. I asked how long to walk from Marks and Spencer at one end to John Lewis at the other and was told 10-15 minutes for an able bodied person. As I am not, I had to return to the car and drive to the other end. It would be helpful if there were Golf Carts to ferry the disabled around as they have in other countries.

“Good range of shops for all price brackets and interests”
Reviewed 24 March 2013 via mobile

For the area it's the best place really to shop, have look round and find what your looking for while shopping. We live about 45mins away and it is nearest 'big mall' that isn't miles or pretty long journey away. It's fair to say it is quite indurstial, although the indoor trees are nice and in the summer all the trees outside are in leaf too, so it breaks up the concrete and hardness of the place.

There a few good places to eat inside, rather than just crap fast food and the parking is in-exspensive.

If you hate shopping you can always walk over to the snow dome and do some sports too!

Overall the location, offering and range of shops they have is probably the best in the area, to get better take a trip down to Westfield in London.

“We love The Centre MK”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

My wife and i always enjoy a shopping trip to the centre MK, as we live in Luton about 20 Miles south and hate using "The Mall" In Luton as it dosn't ofer us the choice and space, the centre MK does!! - it's like going to either Brent Cross or London's West End but without all the hastle of getting to those places, it pays to park a little bit away from the shopping centre at about 30p per hour !! - Purple zone - Standard.
The Centre Mk always puts on a very good Christmas display especially in Middleton Hall for the children and adults a like, Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without the Carousel !! even close to Christmas the centre can get very busy, but it never feels overloaded, best time to go is on a weekday as oppose to weekends. all the top shopping names are represented here Marks & Spencer & John Lewis are a must see !!, as for eating, Mc Donalds & Pizza Hut etc are all here.

“Good shops, OK setting”
Reviewed 4 March 2013

Hundreds of shops lined up, you should be able to find anything you want here. Wide walkways, parking close by, short walk to the rail station.
I have a major gripe about the charges for parking - when shops are shutting down on every high street, the MK council decided that they could easily raise money by charging. They were soon voted out, but the new bunch reduced some fees, but not enough. What is the point of a shopping centre with empty spaces, all the parking should always be free!
