Please follow the below measures in place to keep you safe: *There are sanitising stations by each entrance *A clearly marked one-way system is place, alongside guidance reminders about social-distancing throughout the centre *All of the Seasonal Events that have been planned have been designed with social-distancing and visitors' wellbeing in mind. Check our Facebook page to book early, as availability is limited to a first come first served basis *It is a legal requirement for everyone aged 11 or over to wear a face covering at all times whilst inside Grand Arcade, unless you have a medical exemption *The centre has a unique QR Code for you to scan on entry, which will help the NHS Test and Trace program.

It is a legal requirement for everyone aged 11 or over to wear a face covering at all times whilst inside Grand Arcade, unless you have a medical exemption.
You will find hand sanitising facilities at each entrance. Please be assured that our cleaning regime has been enhanced throughout the centre, including the toilets (on the second floor) which will constantly be manned.
As with all retail destinations, we are limited to a reduced maximum number of visitors and our entrances will be controlled by our Security team. If we reach maximum capacity, you will be asked to wait outside until for a short amount of time. Once in the centre, please help us adhere to the social distancing measures introduced by our government.
We have introduced floor markers to help make your visit as comfortable as it can be given current government guidance which is there for everybody's safety. Please follow our one-way system and keep a safe distance with others during your visit.
We have worked closely with our retail partners to ensure as smooth an entry to their stores as possible. You will find queuing floor markers spaced by two metres in front of each store. Bigger and more popular brands have additional arrangements and we advise that you check with your favourite brand’s own website for more details.
We are now open longer for Christmas shopping. Please click the 'Visit Us' page to see the hours. Individual store hours may vary so please check with each store before making a special visit.
The centre has a unique QR Code for you to scan on entry, which will help the NHS Test and Trace program. Those shops which are also legally bound to display a QR Code have their own displayed at their entrances.
