Brent Cross

About The Centre

Brent Cross was the first large enclosed shopping centre to be built in the UK and it set a new standard for destination shopping. When it first opened in 1976, everyone was sure it wouldn't last! And the idea of opening until 8pm weeknights was truly revolutionary. Remember, in 1976 most shops still closed half days during the week, banks closed at 3pm and almost no-one worked past 5pm! But Brent Cross met a need for shopping people wanted, when and where they wanted it, and took the idea of customer service into the 20th century. For forty years it has been at the heart of the community, meeting the shopping needs of the 7 million people who live within its North London and Hertfordshire catchment. Brent Cross' owners – Hammerson and Aberdeen Standard Investments – continually invest in the fabric of the centre, helping keep it at the forefront of British retailing.
