We recently visiting the new Westgate shopping centre in Oxford and I have to say, they’ve done an amazing job. From a 1970’s style carpark, that quite frankly had the ever present whiff of pee, to a modern and vibrant shopping and eating type place in just a couple of years is really impressive.
Oxford has been lacking in decent shopping, so when I heard they were getting a John Lewis, I admit to some feelings of excitement. I’m not sure what it is about a John Lewis store, but I just love them.
We didn’t go expecting to get ideas for our house project, but I found it quite inspiring! Maybe it’s just that I’m noticing the details more, as the house design is always spinning around my head somewhere.
The new centre and all the shops and restaurants are just so trendy – I couldn’t help take a few photos (I probably looked like a right weirdo taking photos inside the shops!)… I’ll probably take some more next time we visit, as there were plenty of places still to open (particularity excited to have a new modern cinema 🙂 ).
