Lewisham Shopping Centre, formerly Riverdale Centre, is a shopping mall located in Lewisham, London, England. The mall has seen a 7% rise in footfall since the Docklands Light Railway extension came to Lewisham. The centre is the major shopping centre in the borough of Lewisham. Also part of the complex is the Lewisham House office tower, formerly occupied by Citibank. There are proposals to convert this building to flats.

The centre is located in Lewisham town centre. The official address is on Molesworth Street (a dual carriageway section of the A21), but most shoppers enter and leave on the High Street, which houses many more shops such as Peacocks, McDonald's, Currys Digital, Gamestation and Iceland. The car park is located on top of the centre and is multi-storey.

The shopping centre has the usual facilities such as baby changing. One of the highlights of Lewisham was the indoor children's play area, which was always busy. However, in 2006 it was filled in and left empty, and it is not known why the centre management did this.

After many years of Decline in new tenants taking up empty retail space, there has been a big increase of new tenants joining the Lewisham Shopping centre, with some tenants moving to other stores within the centre for bigger retail space. New additions include, H&M, Subway, Tiger, Costa Coffee, and a Larger JD Sports.
