Shopping Centres and Plazas
Surrey is home to three major shopping centres.
Central City Shopping Centre
A good starting point is Central City Shopping Centre (10153 King George Hwy), which is 35 minutes from downtown Vancouver on the SkyTrain rapid transit link or by car. With its spectacular 25-storey glass tower and five-storey inner atrium designed by architect Bing Thom, Central City is easy to spot in downtown Surrey. It's appeared in movies and TV shows like I, Robot and Smallville. Shop for clothing, jewellery, electronics, and more at 100-plus stores, and fill up at the expanded food court, three full-service restaurants, and an Asian-themed supermarket.
Guildford Town Centre - Surrey
Guildford Town Centre (152 St and 104 Ave) is BC's second-largest shopping mall. Highlights include several brand-name department stores and some 200 specialty stores and services, from furniture and luggage to fashion accessories and cosmetics. There's also a 12-screen movie theatre and a free, woodland-themed play park for children.
