Opened on 25th October 1990 by Princess Alexandra, Marcus Bradford and Angus Ogilvy, Lakeside Shopping Centre, together with the adjoining Retail Park, forms one of the largest shopping areas in Europe.
Built on the site of a former chalk quarry, Lakeside acted as a catalyst for development in the local area. The regional shopping centre quickly became a success, attracting high profile stores and plenty of shoppers.
Lakeside underwent a major refurbishment in 2005 which saw the centre transformed into a lighter, airier place to shop. The Boardwalk, opened in 2007, introduced a waterfront leisure area offering, with a host of restaurants, a revolutionary new concept Vue cinema and a play centre.
Lakeside has over 250 shops, cafes and restaurants, including 4 department stores, a fantastic range of high street brands, smaller independent boutiques, a superb Dove Spa with 5 treatment rooms and 13,000 free car parking spaces.
Over 20% of the UK population live within a one hour drive of Lakeside!
Lakeside is open from 10am to 10pm weekdays, 9am to 9pm Saturday and 11am to 5pm Sunday.
Lakeside is part of the Capital Shopping Centres portfolio which also includes MetroCentre, Braehead, The Harlequin and The Arndale.
