If you're looking for somewhere modern, stylish and convenient where you can do all of your shopping whether you're looking for a new pair of shoes, a coat or a new car, somewhere where you can do the weekly shop and then have a meal or perhaps catch a film then Cribbs Causeway offers the complete shopping and leisure solution. The area has been continuously developed over the last 20 or so years and has grown from a handful of out of town stores (Asda or in its previous guise Carrefour was the largest hypermarket in the country) around junction 17 of the M5 and the A4018 Cribbs Causeway (actually the name of the long straight road from the Westbury on Trym direction) to a considerable retail and business location in its own right. It is very convenient and a great day out to boot! Retail therapy at its very best! 

The centre-piece of Cribbs Causeway is a futuristic indoor shopping mall containing over 135 shops including a large John Lewis and a Marks and Spencer (recently refurbished into a fabulous 'concept' store), over a dozen cafes and restaurants, a 1200 seat food court with 15 food outlets and every conceivable facility to make your shopping trip fun and rewarding. No more parking hassles and dodging the showers, The Mall is surrounded by free car parking and has everything you need indoors on two levels. The Mall opened in 1998 and received the title "Shopping Centre of the Year" Click here for more facts about The Mall
For your weekly shopping needs and a whole lot more visit the UK's first  Asda-Walmart Supercentre. This huge store is open 24 hours and offers a new experience in shopping. Apart from the high quality and low prices for foods that are expected from Asda, you will also find a massive range of other goods at discounted prices including clothing, household, sports and electrical. There is an excellent restaurant within the store as well as a pharmacy, vision centre and photography centre. The delicatessen area within the food store is particularly recommended with counters displaying fresh selections of fish, Chinese and Indian food, pizzas, cheeses, meats and a salad bar. Absolutely mouthwatering!

Recently opened is the first Morrisons supermarket in the south west. Extremely popular in the north of England, Morrisons have now spread to other parts of the UK and are a very welcome arrival at Cribbs Causeway. With loads of free parking as you'd expect at Cribbs Causeway, there is also a filling station and car wash and ample nearby parking for the disabled visitor or those with children. Inside the store you'll find a well-stocked, modern supermarket with all of the familiar brands and also some of Morrisons own popular concepts such as the family butcher, fishmonger, pie shop, market street and takeaway. The in store cafe is particularly recommended for meals and snacks.


Elsewhere you'll find  a complete leisure environment with a multi-screen Warner Brothers cinema and many interesting and varied restaurants such as TGI Friday's, Chiquito, KFC McDonalds and Burger King. There is also a superb Harry Ramsden's fish restaurant nearby which often hosts special entertainment events. Recommended for cheap, good food is the restaurant at Asda-Walmart. You could complete the perfect day's shopping by unwinding over a drink or meal or by catching the latest movie. Development plans for the old Dave and Busters site are eagerly awaited. Why not e-mail us your ideas? How about a 10 pin bowling centre or indoor go-karts?

The extensive retail area boasts every large out-of-town store you would expect to find such as PC World, B & Q (with a garden centre), Comet, Argos, Club Golf,  DFS, Toys R Us and Allied Carpets. There are also several motor dealers including Dick Lovett which is the main BMW dealer for the area and also the vast Mercedes Benz Direct and the newly relocated Templegate Peugeot. There are considerable businesses located nearby obviously aware of the convenient motorway access. The area is very popular with travellers from the north and midlands taking a break on their journeys to the south west  for a spot of shopping or something to eat. If you're in a dash and need something to eat you'll find several drive-thru's and a takeaway at Harry Ramsden's fish restaurant.

If you're traveling by car you will find ample, free parking either at the mall or near every out-of-town store. Its a good idea to plan your visit around where you need to locate your car. That is if you are collecting heavy items or food shopping then you might want to park near the appropriate exit. There are designated collect by car spaces near Marks and Spencer. There is convenient access from Bristol or from the motorway system at Junction 17 of the M5. In certain car parks the AA even provide a breakdown service.
