Welcome to


Designer Outlet Village

Our Vision

At Grantham Designer Outlet Village, we’re creating a state-of-the-art retail destination that will transform our visitors’ shopping and leisure experience.

Grantham Designer Outlet Village will be the UK’s only premium outlet with a visible frontage and direct access from the UK’s 3rd busiest highway (A1).

Inspired by the surrounding countryside, our buildings are conceived as traditional forms with contemporary finishes and high-quality shop fronts.

Our research tells us to expect 3.5M visitors to visit Grantham Designer Outlet Village annually with £466/ft² sales density expected in Phase 1*, rising to £578/ft² with the opening of Phase 2.

7.7% Estimated penetration of catchment for Phase 1 (industry average penetration 3%).

Our Plan

Our outlet will offer a uniquely stylish retail and leisure experience for shoppers and tourists alike. Phase 1 will consist of 89 units with an area of 193,680 ft²; Phase 2 will add a further 94,809 ft² and 48 units.

A choice of dine-in or grab and go eateries, combined with an array of premium fashion and lifestyle brands along with landscaped areas for relaxation and children’s play, make Grantham Designer Outlet Village the ideal day out destination. Easily accessible by car and public transport, the scheme will also boast a VIP shopping lounge and relaxation areas to offer a premium shopping experience to guests who are members of its loyalty scheme.
