The Glades is a Britishmarker shopping centre part-owned by Capital Shopping Centres. It is located in Bromleymarker, South-East London. It has a total of 108 stores trading from a combined floorspace of 421,000 sq ft. It is the home of a large Waterstones book store (formally Ottakar's).

The centre is also home to Game, one of two in the town centre, Zara, H&M, Debenhams, M&S, Orange, Gamleys and many more.

The centre was home to one of the first Uniqlo outlets in the UK but this was closed after a rationalisation of the chain following poor initial trading in the country. The company has since opened another outlet in Bromleymarker outside the centre in The Mallmarker.

The Glades has a gift voucher that can be used in most of the stores around the centre.

Development

Building work has begun (Autumn 2006) on a £25 million extension next to the main entrance which will provide additional retail units, car parking spaces and customer facilities.

Shops

The Glades has over 120 shops, including:

There is also a creche, and a large leisure centre called The Pavilion, which includes a large swimming pool with flume tunnels. Last Christmas saw an ice rink erected in the adjacent Queens Park Gardens.

A new church and modern flats were also built by the owners on the Glades land. 18 million people visited the Glades last year..

TV appearances

Recently on TV the Glades featured on an episode of Brainiac science abuse 4 and was part of an undercover investigation to see if more women would go on a date with a man in a bunny costume or in casual clothing.

It has also been on snog, marry or avoid? presented by Jenny Frost.
