Westfield London destinations report record festive footfall

Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield’s London and Stratford City centres attracted 15.6 million shoppers over the festive period, an uplift of 11% year-on-year.

Myf Ryan, CMO Europe and Group Director of Brand and Strategic Marketing for Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield, says: “Our full festive footfall figures reveal this has been the busiest ever Christmas period for our London destinations. Retailers have reported best ever trading periods with some having to undertake emergency restocking.”

“The numbers are testament to the investment we’ve made in putting the customer at the core and creating the very best environment and experience for our visitors and retailers alike. The expansion of Westfield London in the centre’s 10th anniversary year, including the creation of a dedicated Home Quarter for major homewares retailers, is just one example of that belief.”
