While some high streets and regional shopping centres are declining year on year, Westfield London and Stratford City are in robust health, reporting record footfall and turnover year on year. Westfield Stratford City is London’s number one shopping centre and Westfield London is the capital’s second biggest. Combined, Westfield is the UK’s second biggest retail operator, closely behind London’s West End and ahead of other retail city hubs including Manchester and Glasgow.
As well as being the standout retail destinations in London, Westfield London and Stratford City’s ambition is to deliver new and memorable live experiences for its customers. Performance is driven by an evolving retail and leisure experience, which includes the creative use of experiential and digitally powered out-of-home spaces. The development at scale of advanced exterior screens, progressive technology, and experiential squares and areas, enhances the visitor experience further, bridging the gap between customers and retailers before they reach the stores.
