The second in our series of London insights, we asked…
Stress Free Shopping At McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Ashford
Shopping in Central London is exhilarating and there are lots of beautiful things to see, but it can be a bit of a whirlwind. Serious shoppers will know the difficulty of hauling bags around the city and the perils of travelling on public transport with your hands full. Whether it’s squeezing your new goodies onto a packed tube or leaving a purchase on the bus as you rush to get off at the right stop, retail therapy in the capital can sometimes be an overwhelming experience.
Shop And Save
To the south of London in the beautiful Kent countryside, there is a shopping destination with a difference. The McArthurGlen Designer Outlet in rural Ashford is a huge retail paradise and hides 80 top stores and restaurants under its vast, billowing roof. With up to 60% off regular prices, the outlet is the perfect place to spend the day updating your wardrobe.
If a smoother shopping experience appeals to you, the Ashford Express bus will whisk you from Victoria in Central London to right outside the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet! You have hours to spend browsing the discount stores before the Express takes you and your goods back up to London in comfort.
Brilliant Brands and Tempting Eats
McArthurGlen Ashford has lots of stylish deals on clothing and products, whether you’re after sportswear, accessories or even some scented candles! It’s a trendy place to visit and has world-famous brands on offer, including cool and casual Abercrombie & Fitch, tastefully British Ted Baker and fashionable French Connection. In August of this year, the global fashion brand founded by actress Sienna Miller Twenty8Twelve opened their first ever outlet store in McArthurGlen Ashford and this shop is definitely worth a visit! The iconic British label sells a range of clothing that is highly coveted by the London fashion pack.
You can take a break from all the shopping at one of the centre’s delicious restaurants. Grab a light bite at Caffe Nero or a more substantial meal at Wagamama – it’s up to you.
With Christmas fast approaching, there’s no better time or place to grab some gifts (and maybe something for yourself!), so book the McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Ashford Express now for a fantastic day of retail therapy. You can even opt for a free personal styling session to get 2014 off to a fashionable new start (booked in advance). If you’re set on flashing the cash, you’ll get more for your money at McArthurGlen Designer Outlet, and with your travel covered, feel more relaxed while doing it!
