Springfield Outlet: Shopping and Starbucks in Spalding
Starbucks now open in Springfield Outlet, Spalding
Springfield Outlet in Spalding has been around a while, but has recently become a destination if you ask me.
Starbucks has now opened a store. In little ole Spalding, Lincolnshire. Are you kidding me right now?
Spalding is a quiet little market town in the South Holland District of Lincolnshire. With a population of around 30,000, it is not really where you would expect to find a Starbucks.
Plenty of comfortable inside seating is available. Most noteworthy though, is the abundance of outside seating with free wifi access. Yes please! In fact, I am sitting outside of Starbucks, Spalding right now sipping a cold brew coffee and writing this post.
With popular stores like Marks and Spencer, Next, Sports Direct, Fatface and GAP, there is enough of a draw to justify a Starbucks as well as a popular British coffee (and Starbucks wanna be) Costa.
The main shopping anchor is the Springfields Home and Garden. This is one of Lincolnshire’s biggest and best garden centres. Take it from me, they have just about everything you need and want. There is a great selection of BBQ’s, outdoor fireplaces and outdoor furniture. They have an extensive selection of both indoor and outdoor plants as well.
Other stores you will find at Springfield Outlet are:
- The Body Shop
- Suit Direct
- Jeff Banks
- Mountain Warehouse
- Cotton Traders
- Regatta Great Outdoors
- Holland and Barrett
- Weird Fish
- Lots more…
After a day of shopping, you are going to be hungry for sure. The garden centre has a great restaurant (try the English breakfast if you’re there early).
Springfield Outlet also hosts a great little restaurant called The Kitchen, which has great sandwiches, burgers and pub style food like fish and chips, sausage and mash, steak pie and a killer Ploughman’s.
There is also a Frankie and Benny’s, a crappy American style diner with pretty forgettable food but memorable indigestion.
Springfield Outlet is not just your typical outlet shopping either. You will find some great family outing opportunities as well. Jurassic Golf and the Springfield Miniature Railway are all located here as well. Not only that, but it is also the final stop on the Spalding Water Taxi.
Finally, I urge you to pack up your family and head out for a great day of shopping and fun at Springfield Outlet in Spalding.
