I used to like Bluewater. I used to think it was a cut above other British shopping centres (which it still is), but then two things happened. First of all, it became more of a hang-out for chavs (for want of a better phrase), with the cinema in particular suffering badly from this. And second, I visited a real American mall, the Galleria in Fort Lauderdale, and now I know I see Bluewater for the pale imitation it is.
Still, it has an Apple Store, so the day wasn’t entirely wasted.
