The Metrocentre, as the name would lead you to believe, isn't located on the metroline. However, it's on the motorway with parking is free, the train line, and a million bus routes, it would be more difficult not getting there.
Inside you get all the usual high street things, and a bunch of more interesting ones. Things like a jellybean shop, and a shop that sells paper. Not you ever really need an entire shop of paper. It's just nice to know one's there if you ever do. There's plenty of smaller more independant places dotted around.
Entertainment wise it's rather good, the cinema is pretty large and is surrounded by eateries and similar thing. There are restaurants in various places and offer quite a wide range of choices, the Mediteranian Village in particular has quite a few restuarants. You also get the usual McDonalds, Burger King... etc.
The layout is pretty straight forward and there are maps and screens all over the place if you do manage to get lost. There isn't really anything left to say about the place. It's worth a vist, especially if the weather is bad and you want to shop in doors. Hell, it's probably worth a visit anyway.
Summary: Go, shop, dine, enjoy.
