Decent range of shops here. From male and female clothes shops, including topshop topman, new look, evans, etc. to HMV and Game. There's a few eating places such as maccy dees and nandos also.
The car park's quite large, though on saturday peak shopping time the queues both in and out (especially out) can be at least 20 minutes before you're well clear. It's just off both the A406 and the A13, and not far from the North Woolwich side of the Woolwich ferry.
Particularly handy for weeknight after work shopping, since a lot of the shops are open till around 8pm.
The nearest DLR station is.Gallions Reach ;o). There's bus connections in the form of the 101, 262 and 366 (just cheated using the tfl site!).
Lots of good shops usual sort of retail park even though they have everything you need including a 24 hour Tesco it smells really badly of eggs! its worse on a hot day! this is because of a local sewage factory really lets the place down! its common to see people screw up there faces and hold there noses!
the most annoying thing is the Gallions reach station is a good 15 min walk or 4 min bus ride! they need a shuttlebus!
Gallions Reach is a really nice shopping environment. Firstly it is all open plan - there is hundreds of parking spaces. They dont have a huge selection of shops but it still has enough to make a day out. What i love about it is that it is never really that busy, and the shops are massive so its so spacious and nice to walk around without being cramped. They have a massive new look, a Tesco with two levels!, a toy store, miss selfridge, topshop, dorothy perkins, burtons, evans, wallis, sport shops, superdrug and river island - to name a few. Its a nice environment to go for a walk. They also have a few restuarants if you want a bite to eat - the usual fast food, but also nandos and pizza hut. I would warn you though that it is opposite a sewage plants and sometimes you will wish that it was undercover as the smell is so bad!!
Want to shop for clothes dont want to go 2 Oxford Street then Gallions Reach is the next best thing. With all high street names, theres something for everyone. Clothes clothes clothes..thats enough I think. I canhear you getting ready already!
And theres a great place in the centre with food, drinks and other bargains!
A welcome addition to the East Ham/Beckton shoppping experience. Gallions Reach has a good range of clothing stores (Evans, Dorothy Perkins, River Island, Wallis) as well as big Boots and Superdrug stores. The layout of the park is a little disappointing - while there's plenty of parking, everything seems to be spread out a little more than it needs to be. EG, if you're shopping and decide to go to eat, you have to walk way across the complex to get to the few (Pizza Hut, Nando's and MC D's) restaurants. Transport links from Stratford, Canning Town, Beckton and East Ham are very good. Lastly, the Tesco Extra is a great store - evrything you could want to buy under one roof!
i found out about this place because i was EAGER to visit the Bank Fashion store! ive been here about 4 times and everytime i spend! i love this place (apart from the times it smells of egg/poo and sewage!) i love this retail park because its never busy very spacious and quiet. highly recommended if you're not into staying 'scuse me, sorry , scuse me' all the while. 5 stars from m
