“Everything under one roof”

Almost everything under one roof

The inevitable crowds

When I lived just outside Havant, I visited WestQuay shopping centre several times as it wasn’t much further than the shopping centres in Portsmouth. Since moving back to Southsea in 2007, however, I hadn’t been to WestQuay at all. One Saturday in January I was obliged to go there as I was having...

“The 'Quay' place to shop!”

published 16/06/2009

great variety of shops and eateries

sports direct staff were very rude and unhelpful

My girlfriend and I went to West Quay on the Saturday just gone and we had a great time. We went in search of a present for her mum and for some work trousers and shirts for me for work. There so are many shops at West Quay I won't bother listing all of them, i don't want to be accused of filling...

“Shopping heaven!”

Everything you need under 1 roof

The inconvenient escalator layout!!

West Quay shopping Centre opened about 10 years ago right in the centre of Southampton. "The outside" From the outside building is impressive to look at, very modern and expansive (although there's been some mixed opinions about it ruining Southampton's historic appearance). The main entrance is...

Can Get Very Crowded on Weekends, You Have to Walk...

***WHERE IS WEST QUAY?*** West Quay is an undercover shopping complex in Southampton City Centre. It is a short distance from Southampton train station, and provides 4,000 parking spaces for those who wish to drive there. As with anywhere, the parking is fairly pricey, but not excessively so...

Modern, lots of shops, food court

Gets very busy

West Quay is a huge, and I mean huge shopping centre in Southampton City Centre. It is a fairly new centre so the design is modern and spacious, but at busy times this is a problem. Because the distance between shops opposite each other is quite a long way, when the centre is really busy it is...

“Go West...”

Warm & dry

Can be very crowded, same old shops

Having lived in Southampton for most of my life, it was only when I moved away from the city that this huge new shopping centre was completed. During a weekend visit back to Southampton, I went into the city centre to see what was new, and could hardly fail to miss West Quay! There is no doubt...

Good

published 31/08/2007

I agree with most of the points made by HannahBoo - it's a friendly, pleasant place to shop. It can get terribly frenetic on Saturdays, and there is quite a lot of walking required. Facilities for disabled shoppers are reasonable but far apart.
