About Lakeside Retail Park

Lakeside Retail Park was completed in 1990 and underwent further expansion in 2004, making it the seventh-largest shopping centre in Britain, with 1.4m square feet of retail space.

Built on the site of an old chalk quarry close to West Thurrock and to Grays, in Essex, the centre has more than 250 shops, around 50 eating places, plus a 26-acre lake, with a diving centre.
