Westgate Shopping Mall – Oxford

DBF48076-0A09-4B49-99A4-335BACC10133I wouldn’t normally rave about a shopping centre but Oxford’s new  Westgate is designed to please those that don’t actually like malls. It also has some incredible photo opportunities from the terrace.

When one says mall one thinks an indoor shopping area but this mall has see through ceilings and areas where there are no ceilings at all. It makes for a fresh feeling and experience when partaking in retail therapy. So outdoor meets indoor with wide boulevards, arty installations and plenty of places to sit, but the piece de resistance has to be the open air roof top terrace with a slew of eateries and bars and views of those classic dreaming spires.

I could list the shops and food places but you would find it easier to access up to date information via the Westgate portal. 0BA556E4-F388-44C0-91D2-0BE2AC84084B

Best dressed window on my visit has to go to Dr Martens with its pretty flowery boots and I can not go without giving a nod to Kupp  my first {fantastic} Scandi eating experience in the UK with seating areas looking out across the city and way beyond. …….and Pizza Pilgrims a canteen feel to Italian eating with tumblers for wine glasses you can not go wrong here, loved the little tuk tuk style van at the front of the restaurant.

Close to the bus and train station and close to the other top things to see and do in Oxford, what’s not to like?
