Cabot Circus opened in 2008, transforming the Broadmead area of Bristol city centre, which had experienced a period of decline since the opening of Cribbs Causeway on the northern edge of the Bristol.
Cabot Circus consists of 1,000,000 sq ft of prime retail space, offering over 140 shops and restaurants as well as a multi-screen Showcase Cinema de Lux.
The shopping centre is anchored by House of Fraser and Harvey Nichols, whilst boasting other high end stores such as Hollister and Apple.
The roof of Cabot Circus has been widely praised for both its architectural design and environment benefits. The roof was designed by artist Nayan Kulkarni and comprises 2,800 panes of glass over 60,000 sq ft. It provides the centre with natural light, protection from the elements and environmentally friendly, natural ventilation.
The shopping centre was built by the property companies Hammerson and Land Securities.
