You love your kids. You love shopping. But combining the two can be tricky. Here at Centrale and Whitgift we want your trip to our centre to be as pleasant as possible. Which is why we’ve got lots of things to make life for you a little bit easier, and shopping for them a little bit more fun.

Family parking

We have allocated larger parking spaces for young families, making it easier to get in and out of the car with prams and pushchairs. You can find them on every level of our Centrale car park and the Whitgift open air car park.

Baby changing Parent and child facilities are available on each mall level in Centrale, and within Debenhams and House of Fraser. There are more facilities on Level 3, Whitgift and within Marks and Spencer. Wider areas for buggies and lifts throughout make for a stress-free visit.


There are a selection of restaurants and cafes in the centres, with lots of them providing high chairs. There are bottle warming facilities available in Debenhams’ restaurant on the second floor.

Things to do

There’s a pristine baby grand piano just waiting for your Jamie Cullen impression (or your child’s rendition of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star). Find it near Debenhams on the Ground Floor Mall.

Child safety

Centrale and Whitgift is a family-friendly shopping destination. Should you be separated from your child please stay as close as possible to where you last saw them and inform a member of shop or centre staff. Please contact our Visitor Information Point, located in Whitgift Square, or call 0208 686 0297 for further assistance.
