Centre Information

Centre Maps, Shoppers Guides and Leaflets

Thamesgate is very easy to navigate as it is a walkthrough with shops on the right and left of you. However, shopper’s guides have been installed at each entrance of the centre for shoppers to be able to identify exact locations.

The Centre is open for between 08:00 and 18:30 Monday to Saturday with the shops open for business between 09:00 and 18:00. The centre is open between 09:00 and 17:00 on Sundays with the shops open for business between 10:00 and 16:00.

Newly Renovated

Redecorated, Newly Installed Flooring

Work is now complete on the upgrade of the mall floor. A new Amtico flooring has been laid. The neutral colour of the floor will contrast well with the mall traders once they are reinstated.

The mall traders have brought in new stalls which will enhance the overall look of the centre.

The bulkheads, columns, handrails and ceilings on the mall have all been redecorated and new LED lighting has been installed in the troughs within the vaulted ceilings. New LED down lighters have also been installed in the centre.

Mobility

Easy Wheelchair Access

Access for wheel chairs and shop mobility scooters is extremely easy. The main entrances lead directly on to the mall. The mall consists of one ground floor level so there are no escalators or stairs to navigate.

Passenger Lifts provide easy access to all the levels of the car park for wheel chairs and shop mobility scooters.

The Centre Management and security office is also located on Ground level to give assistance where needed.

A Brief History

Thamesgate Shopping Centre was formerly called The Anglesea Shopping Centre and was built in 1975. The Centre covers an area of approximately 100,000 sqft. The private property developer, Edinburgh House, bought the Centre in 2001 and gave it a £300,000 makeover and its new name in 2003. In addition to a thorough redecoration, new exit and entrance doors were added along with new signs and brighter lighting.
