“ Address: Broadway Town Centre / Bexleyheath / DA6 7JN / Tel: +44 020 8303 0755 „
The Broadway shopping centre is situated in Bexleyheath. Which is a busy town on the Kent - London border. This review is base on the shopping centre only, I have written another review on Bexleyheath in general.
The centre stretches practically the whole length of the high street, there are doors at either end and in the middle, so it is very easy to get inside.
It is a four storey building but the shops are only on the ground floor.
The ground floor layout is set out in a T shape with a costa coffee open plan cafe in the middle. There is a good choice of high street shops within the centre, if you are looking for clothes, shoes and accessories there is a Next, BHS, M&S, Dorothy Perkins, Monsoon, Burton, New Look, River Island, Clarks, Barratts, Ann summers, Claires accesories and a couple of independent clothes stores such as Krisp, and Honeybee.
Other shops include, body shop, Clintons, Early Learning centre, Argos, HMV, H Samuel, W H smith and several phone shops.
If you start to feel hungry or need to wet your whistle there are several eateries in the centre, Burger King, McDonald's, Costa coffee, Starbucks, also M&S and BHS have in store cafes. There is also a Greggs bakers.
The centre is kept to a good standard, it is clean, airy and well lit. There is a good security pressence and I feel safe and comfortable walking around.
In the middle of the centre there is a help desk where you can ask for any information, directions or help you may need. There is also a list of job vacancies within the centre and information on how to apply.
There are modern newly renovated toilets and baby changing rooms on the first floor. You can get there by the lift or stairs that are situated behind the help desk. There are also toilets in Marks and Spencer and BHS which are at either end of the centre so you won't be caught short.
There are two levels of car parking, to get into the car park there is a ramp on Albian road which is at the back of BHS. It is a pay on foot car park and there are ticket machines at all exits and by the lifts.
The Broadway is a typical shopping centre, used by locals and the heart of the town. I wouldn't suggest you visit Bexleyheath purely to visit the shopping centre but if you are in the area or live near by then it is worth a look.
