Due to COVID-19 the centre has new restrictions and procedures in place to keep everyone safe.
If arriving by car, the entrance ticket machine has been updated to automatically issue a ticket when you pull up to the barrier. The pay machines are now CARD ONLY and are sanitised regularly. You can only access the centre via the BLUE Doors and you may be asked to queue if we have reached capacity. Exit to the car park will be via the RED DOORS only. We will have 282 car park spaces available when we reopen.
You may be asked to queue to enter the shopping centre and we will be operating a strict One Way System. You must keep left and walk clockwise in the atriums whilst keeping 2m apart from other households. Floor graphics will show the 2m distance.
Only one household at a time should use the lifts.
Keep 5 steps apart on the escalators.
Queuing for shops in the mall is limited, due to social distancing safety.
Please use contactless payments where you can.
Feel free to wear a face covering.
From its opening in 1991, West Orchards has been at the heart of the city centre shopping, offering a wide choice of retail outlets with major high street names as well as independent outlets. With a 550 space car park with electric chargers on level 5, over 40 retail outlets and their new food destination, CANTEEN, with public toilets, baby change/breast feeding and disabled facilities on level 2. We have ATM machines located on the ground floor and level 2, it is easy to see why the centre is such a success.
