Trafford centre

Located near to the Manchester united football ground and with excellent motorway links the Trafford centre is the perfectly located if your in the northwest and fancy a day of shopping.

The mall is based on a Roman theme with marble columns and glass domes, which creates and alight and airy shopping environment. The mall is open from 10.am to 10pm monday thru friday.
There are 280 shops and 38 restaurants to dine in with more planned on the way. There is Selfridges, Debahams and other UK high street retailers. When it comes to dining then the orient is the place to go. Conveniently located on the centre of the mall is a food court and in the design of a deck of a ship with a large screen TV showing all thatˇ¦s going on at the mall. The court has all the usual fats food eateries. Surrounding the food court there are a number of restaurants such as Exchange bar and grill (Great burgers) or Cathay Dim Sum and Nandoˇ¦s for Portuguese cuisine.
When it comes to entertainment then you can always relax with a bucket of popcorn and a movie or why not visit the Namco centre for either 10 pin bowling or shooting American pool. If you fancy shooting someone then why not visit the Laser quest.

Why not spend a full day and night and stay over, there are a number of hotels in walking distance from the mall,

1.Tulip Inn- adjacent the main entrance close to the bus station for the Trafford centre will take 8 minutes to walk too. http://tulipinnmanchester.goldentulip.com/
2.Premier travel Inn (Manchester Trafford Centre North) 0.4 miles from the main entrance to the trafford centre
3.Premier Travel Inn (Manchester Trafford Centre South) 0.1 My recomendation as its just around the cornewre from the oreint entrance where all the resturants are located and is actually situated in the main grounds where othe two options requires the crossing of a major road. The hotel is also close one of my favorite restuarnt chains ˇ§Frankie and benniesˇ¨.
