I think Westfield has to be the ultimate in window shopping, it is mind blowing. It even has its own viewing platform.
So that you can see this.
And that only gives you a flavour of just how big it is. It is one of the largest shopping centres in Europe – 175,000 square meters. You can do a lot of window shopping here. I’ve been twice and both times I have actually loved it, although a once a year trip is probably enough for me.
When I was growing up in the seventies in leafy Warwickshire we never knew what a mall was. I used to hear about them on t.v. programs such as Happy Days and hear how people would ‘hang out’ at ‘the mall’ and I just didn’t understand it, why would you want to do that? I understand it now.
