Westgate Oxford opens its doors

The new Westgate Oxford shopping centre has opened its doors to the public for the first time.

The launch was celebrated with an acrobatics display in a balloon heliosphere which sailed up towards the glass roof of the 800,000 square foot development.

In addition, the first ten days of opening will feature a series of ‘curiouser and curiouser’ theatrical and creative experiences in homage to the novel Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, which was written in Oxford. 

Brendan Hattam, centre manager at Westgate Oxford, said: “With a first-class line-up of retail, food and leisure brands, Westgate Oxford cements the city’s reputation as one the most attractive destinations in the country. We’ve worked hard to bring Oxford something that’s truly unique, blending the character and charm of this historic city with all the ingredients of a perfect day out.”

Westgate Oxford is anchored by a 140,000 square foot John Lewis store and will also be home to brands such as Uniqlo, Primark, Ted Baker, Victoria’s Secret Pink, MAC and Nespresso Boutique.

The centre also features the city’s first public roof terrace which offers visitors views of the spires of Oxford and the surrounding countryside.

Opening in time for Christmas, rooftop restaurants will include the first venture outside London for Pizza Pilgrims, Dirty Bones and Cinnamon Kitchen as well as Sticks n Sushi, The Breakfast Club, and The Alchemist. There will also be a five-screen boutique Curzon cinema.
