From all of us at Cabot Circus


Our priority is yours and our colleagues’ health and we have introduced a range of measures to keep us all safe. These include:

• Face coverings are compulsory throughout the centre, including in all our stores.

• Hand sanitiser stations around the centre.

• Enhanced cleaning procedures throughout the centre.

• We are only accepting card or contactless payments at our Pay on Foot machines in the car park.

• A one-way system in the centre. Signage is in place throughout to help guide your journey while you shop.

• Clear signs throughout the centre reminding everyone of the need to social distance, and to avoid shopping in large groups.

• We’re restricting how many people can enter the centre and individual stores at any one time. This way, we can ensure everyone in the centre is able to social distance easily. Please be advised that to support this, queue systems will be introduced near entrances during busy periods. • To further assist you when planning your visit, we have introduced Crowd Checker on our website and PLUS app. Crowd Checker allows you to see how busy the centre is in real time.

Please bear with us, as it might take a little longer than normal to get what you want when you visit.

In line with the latest Government guidance, restaurants and cafes in Cabot Circus will only be able to offer takeaway and delivery services. For a list of those restaurants and cafes offering takeaway and delivery click here.

Below are a range of answers to the most frequently asked questions to help plan your next visit:

Can I use the lift?

Our lifts are available for use but social distancing is required at all time, and we are recommending one person or household per lift. Please only enter a vacant lift when it becomes available. This may mean delays to your journey through the centre during times of high use.

Shopmobility services are temporarily closed. Please refer to our Shopmobility page for further information and updates.

Do I have to wear a face covering?

In line with the latest guidance from the Government, face coverings are mandatory throughout the centre and in our shops. You can view a list our website which shows where you can buy a face covering in the centre. There is a vending machine available on Level 3 of the car park which sells disposable face coverings.

Are store changing rooms open to try on items?

Our retailers will have their own policies when it comes to changing rooms and return periods, so if you're interested in visiting a specific store, we'd recommend getting in touch with them direct. My Cabot Circus gift card expired while the centre was closed, what can I do?
