About Us

Owned by Derwent Holdings, Walkden Town Centre is undergoing a major refurbishment and extension programme to create a superb shopping and leisure destination for Greater Manchester.

Derwent Holdings is one of the companies that Kwik Save founder, Albert Gubay, has passed to trustees so that the Albert Gubay’ Charitable Foundation can use their profits for charitable causes.

Walkden Town Centre boasts a prime High Street location with up to 2000 free car parking spaces and easy access by public transport, and offers a relaxed shopping environment with a varied programme of free family events run throughout the year.

Anchored by one of the largest Tesco Extras in the UK, other retailers
include Costa Coffee, JD Sports, Greggs, Quality Save, Subway,
 McDonalds, KFC, and Boots. Banks such as Halifax and Lloyds TSB are represented in the centre and are soon to be joined by Santander.  The recently opened Victoria Market provides another attraction to shoppers and, coupled with smaller units in the scheme, offers an excellent opportunity for starter units progressing to larger spaces. 

Walkden Town Centre is fast becoming the hub of the local community, with over 140,000 people visiting each week to meet friends and family, to eat and drink, to work and to enjoy their leisure time. The Centre Manager and dedicated management team, which includes professional security, hygiene and maintenance staff look after the day to day running of Walkden Town Centre. We ensure that all staff are fully trained in fire and Health & Safety to ensure any situation can be handled in a professional manner.

David Lyons, the recently appointed Managing Director at Derwent Holdings, comments:

"Walkden Town Centre represents a major investment in the Walkden area and we look forward to welcoming new occupiers to the Centre."
