Retail, leisure and hospitality is one of the most innovative and exciting sectors within our investment strategy, encompassing shopping centres, retail parks, hotels, sports and entertainment venues.
Most of our investment is made directly through Peel Land and Property, which conceived and developed the world class intu Trafford Centre in Manchester.
Our stake in intu is complemented by our ownership of a portfolio of retail parks and major urban outlets in Manchester and Gloucester, with a new one evolving in Glasgow.
TraffordCity is the UK’s most dynamic retail, leisure and commercial destination which is home to intu Trafford Centre, as well as some of the biggest brands and most high profile leisure operators in the country.
