The kind of person who would be standing outside the shops waiting for the missus to hurry up. The kind of person who still gets lost in the metrocentre! But when i do need to go... More

One of the biggest out of town shopping malls in Europe I'm sadly unconvinced what the attraction is, soulless! Go to Newcastle.

we were visiting friends in south shields and decided to pop into the metro centre on the way home just for a look but we ended up getting most of our Christmas shopping in, the place is great with so many shops but you really would need a full day to get around

It's been upgraded and a lot fresher than when I was last there. The food court has changed into a nice area, what a difference, clean fresh and well laid out. Shopping is good and the staff very helpful we were directed to a shop that we were looking for without even asking directions.

Great afternoon shopping. The Carphone Warehouse in here is the worst i have ever come across. Apart from this all is good. Was nice to see Armed Police walking the Malls.
