Totally love the Metrocentre. Whether I'm shopping alone or with family. Great selection of shops and restaurants. Has the amusements, cinema and bowling. Free parking and staff always friendly. It's always clean and they have fab Christmas decorations up when it's that time of year.

I've had Scottish notes before and spent them no problem. I've always thought its same. You could always contact metro centre management for extra peace of mind. Hope that helps. Enjoy your visit.
