The figures showed that Intu Watford was the biggest riser – up 10 places to position 26 since last year – followed by Westgate Oxford and The Lexicon Bracknell, which both rose eight places.
The report by GlobalData was compiled using consumer and business-to-business research as well as data from landlords, property experts and shoppers, and showed that Intu has the most centres in the top 20.
However, GlobalData said “virtually all regions of Britain boast excellent shopping centre provision”.
