Please see below for more information on the measures in place or visit individual restaurant pages for individual booking policies and new ways of operating. Our toilet facilities including baby changing are open, however, our children’s play area remains closed in accordance with government guidelines.

A note from the centre team
Dear Guests,

The past few weeks have indeed been very unsettling for us all, and I hope that you and your families are well.

I am very pleased to be able to confirm that we have re-opened our Centre and we look forward to welcoming you back to York Designer Outlet soon.

To ensure the safety and welfare of all our guests and employees we have put in place a number of necessary social distancing guidelines so that you can visit all of your favourite brands safely. Your health and safety is paramount to all of us at McArthurGlen - and I want to thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

In tribute to the great work of our NHS and key workers, we have created a “rainbow” themed plant installation near our North Entrance. Do pop by and see this if you have time.

For those of you who visit our centre over the coming days and weeks, I hope you have an enjoyable day and visit us again soon.

Paul Tyler
Centre Manager

Blooming with thanks

We wanted to show our recognition to all NHS staff and key workers who have worked so hard in the fight against COVID-19 by painting our Bloom garden in rainbow colours.

We hope all who see and enjoy our garden will join us in a heartfelt thank you.
