  • Nueva Condomina Shopping Centre (Murcia)

    Recommended by Victoria Corbit

    This is a new shopping centre (the largest in Europe!) which has opened on the outskirts of Murcia right next to the Football stadium so a bit of a drive outside of Torrevieja!  This Shopping centre houses English favorites such as Mothercare, H&M and even a Primark which us English love.

    Comments
    "Being a Primark and Mothercare junkie I was so excited when they opened the Nueva Condiminium in Murcia.  The Centre is a big one which houses a Cinema, various restaurants and of course lots of great retail outlets.  Definitely worth a visit.  On the opposite site of the road they also have another centre which has an IKEA!  Everyone loves IKEA!  For the kids there is also ten pin bowling" (VC, Oct 09)

    Recommended by Victoria Corbit

    Iceland in Torrevieja opened it’s doors in July and what a success it has been. If you are looking for some English food at cheap prices then look no further. They have not marked the products at ridiculous prices so everything is at affordable prices. They also stock a range of Waitrose products.

    "I have been on a few occasions and I wasn’t disappointed at all!  Not only do they offer a great frozen selection for 
    bar-be-ques and parties but they also have a great snack selection.  Things like scotch eggs and snack stuff that you can’t really get in Spain and really miss from England.  Great shop definitely worth a visit"
