This month I hit the winter sales at Junction 32, my favourite West Yorkshire Outlet Shopping centre. I’ve been visiting and working with Junction 32 for 9 months now, so I thought I’d share a little guide about how to get the most out of your visit. From the best places to eat and the best times to visit, here’s my shopper’s guide to Junction 32.

What’s on offer at Junction 32 ?
You can expect to find over 70 high street stores and brands at Junction 32, all offering up to 60% off the RRP, all year round. This includes stock from past seasons, bestselling styles and occasional current must-haves. I once picked up a jumper from the Levi’s shop which I saw in Selfridges just a couple of weeks before!
Junction 32 is an open-air shopping centre, but there is still plenty of shelter and canopies if you’re visiting during a rainy day. Some of my favourite brands at Junction 32 include Nike, Next, New Balance, The Body Shop, M&S, Jack Wills, Denby and Adidas (check out the full list here) . With so many stores covering fashion, homeware, interiors and beauty, a visit to Junction 32 is like a one-stop-shop. Another bonus is that it has 1,400 free parking spaces.
A Shopper's Guide to Junction 32
The best times to visit
Through the year there are opportunities to get even more discounts on top of the outlet prices and the discount sales during the Winter and Summer are brilliant. It’s also worth knowing that Junction 32 is open til 8pm on weekdays, meaning after work shopping is most definitely a thing!
On site facilities
As a mum, I love that Junction 32 is family friendly and caters for little ones with a brilliant outdoor play area which is hidden away in the centre of the shops. There are also baby changing facilities and Junction 32 is part of the Breastfeeding Friendly Scheme.
Whenever I visit with my son, we always let him blow off some steam in the play area before squeezing in a few more shops. There are also two award-winning toilet blocks and benches are spread around the centre.
For those with mobility limitations, wheelchairs and scooters can be hired free of charge. For more info and to see the full list of on-site facilities visit the Junction 32 website.
The best places to eat
There are plenty of places to stop and grab a coffee or a light bite to eat at Junction 32 including Starbucks, Greggs and Costa. If you’re looking for more of a substantial meal, hop over the road to Xscape Castleford where you can choose from restaurants such as Pizza Express, TGI Fridays, Ask Italian, Five Guys, Nandos and Heavenly Desserts.
What I bought in January
This month I visited Nike and New Balance to find some discount activewear to motivate me to continue my physio and knee rehab in the gym. A few of the bargain items I picked up included Nike yoga leggings for £23.95 (RRP £47.95) and a Nike workout top for £13.95 (RRP £27.95).
I also found a great pair of workout leggings in New Balance which were reduced to just £19 (RRP £40), as well as a gorgeous pair of pastel-coloured New Balance trainers for £63 (RRP £90).
Finally, I popped in to Next where I found this light forest green coat which would be perfect for transitioning from winter to spring (£50). This is just a little flavour of some of the discounts on offer at Junction 32.
