Westwood Cross is a pedestrianised shopping centre and has over 50 high street stores, cafes and restaurants. Our anchor stores include M&S, Primark, Debenhams and Next. We also have a Vue Cinema, Casino and Bingo venue on site.

Parking is ample and free - all day, every day. We are open until 7.30Pm every weekday.

Westwood Cross strives to maintain a clean, friendly and safe shopping environment. Our efforts were rewarded when we were awarded the 2013 Achieving Customer Excellence (ACE) award for best retail/shopping park.

We have a team of dedicated and long-standing security and cleaning personnel - some of whom have worked at Westwood Cross since we opened in 2004!

There are designated disabled and parent and child parking spaces located around the whole of the car park.

The car park is under CCTV surveillance and is partrolled by both Euro Car Parks and our own security team.

While you're with us, enjoy a safe and relaxed family shopping experience.

We go here shopping due to the free parking and Primark, Marks and Spencers, Next and sainsbury store and a few of the other shops. It's great to see that there is no empty outlet space anymore. The selection of products is good and the range of cost of products suits everyone. However around the area there are other shops... More

Westwood cross is not in my opinion the greatest shopping centre , it is a cold wind tunnel most days and in the rainy weather it's even worse. There are the usual high street shops , nothing out of the ordinary - but it gets the business because there isn't really anywhere else local to go anymore. If I have... More

Came and had a few hours around the shops. Nice selection including Debenhams and marks and Spencer's. We finished off with a game of bingo at Mecca.

I go here a lot. There are a lot of different shops. I like HMV, The Range, Pound Stretchers and the pound shops. My only gripe is that it is all over the place. You have the main part, then another part over one road and another part over another road. There only 1 decent cafe (Sainsbury.) All the rest... More

Thanet District Council really did not think this one through properly and the result is a Shopping 'Centre' spread around a traffic island. If you want to browse the entire mall you have to keep getting back into your car and travelling via roundabouts to the various outposts. Not great for stress-free shopping. In addition, the range of shops is... More

For the actual shops available. These aren't bad at all and plenty of choice for all. Lots of eating places. Cinema and mecca Bingo, so for a day out its great!! The watch out is parking, it's definitely outgrown the customer need. Came for one shop visit and game of afternoon bingo. Left to get there in plenty of time... More

I would of marked it higher today but there is loads of rubbish flying about and no one about to pick it up that's the only thing letting the place down at the moment since I have been here not one litter picker about I all so think this place needs a good clean down and a repaint.

Wow! We saw some awful parking and road rage on our last visit!! There aren't enough spaces for a start, and some people still think it's ok to park across 2 spaces, purely out of selfishness! It was quite enjoyable though watching some of this, especially watching one car squeeze next to the idiot who'd park over 2 spaces! I... More

It's in Thanet, which is North of Dover and East of Canterbury. It has shops, you can go to the shops and buy things. What more can be said really.

Let me first say, that the shops at Westwood cross are great. However there is a parking scam going on in the car park outside Smyths toy store, Poundland etc. If you park for three hours or more, you will receive a £100 fine from the owners. Try getting around the shops in three hours on a good day, leave... More
