I got an utterly hopeless 5/20, and I live in East Sussex!

I was at Bluewater last Sunday as it happens. Wikipedia seems to suggest it is the fifth biggest at least when it comes to square footage. Perhaps it has a higher total of shops within that space.

Oo, I did write this quiz a while ago. I'll maybe change it to something like "when built" - thanks. Although looking at the list the Metro Centre has been around for ages, and I remember when I went there even they admitted they were smaller than Bluewater. Perhaps they've had an extension or something.

Twas a great quiz by the way!

Even I as a resident of Sussex must admit Kent is rather interesting too! And Bluewater be it the biggest or not, must surely be the nicest shopping centre, it has in all the years I've been going there never failed to disappoint.
