List of shopping centres in the United Kingdom by size
This is a list of the largest shopping centres in the United Kingdom, listed by retail size in square metres (m²). Only centres of more than 70,000m² of space are listed. Some of these are out-of-town centres, while others are part of a city or town centre shopping district, which in almost all cases also includes many stores not part of the shopping centre. Many city and town centre shopping districts not represented in this list are larger than some of the centres listed.
