Whiteleys Shopping CentreBritain?s first department store opened its grand, Edwardian doors back
in 1912, five years after the murder of William Whiteley, the self-made
entrepreneur behind the scheme. Gordon Selfridge ? founder of Selfridges
? bought it in 1927 and it continued to flourish until World War II.



On account of its long and
illustrious past, many were sad when it finally closed down in 1981,
after years of gradual decline, unsuccessfully trying to compete with
the lure of the booming West End. Since its grand reopening in 1989, Whiteley?s has retaken the crown of central London?s largest shopping
centre (with over 300,000 square foot of selling space) and helped to
revive the Bayswater area.



The colonnade faade of this
magnificently restored building dominates Queensway. Inside the marble
?La Scala? staircase is the centrepiece of the main atrium, lined with a
fantastic array of shops. Sadly some things have changed - the rooftop
golf course is now a carpark and the in-house theatre a more
contemporary multiplex cinema ? but Whiteley?s still retains a degree of
old-time charm.



It?s stuffed to bursting point with
over 70 shops, stocking anything from the latest fashions to herbal
remedies. Upstairs there?s a TV studio where Channel 5?s ?The Wright
Stuff? is filmed.
