Window Shopping, Westfield, Stratford City, E20.

I think Westfield has to be the ultimate in window shopping, it is mind blowing. It even has its own viewing platform.  Westfield 2 2

So that you can see this. Westfield 1 1

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.
