Bath & Body Works will join a host of beauty retailers at Westfield, including Sephora, Boots, Rituals and Space NK.

The store, spread across 2,357 sq ft, is set to open later this month and will be the retailer’s fifth standalone shop in the UK.

Known for its gifting and fragrance options, Bath & Body Works trades through Next in the UK alongside its own stores in Gateshead’s Metrocentre, Sheffield’s Meadowhall, Kent’s Bluewater and Manchester’s Trafford Centre.

Kate Orwin, leasing director for the UK at Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield, said: “We’ve experienced a strong year so far in leasing at Westfield London, with increasing demand for upsizing and new store space as brands look to expand in strategic locations.

“This momentum builds upon the success of 2023, during which we welcomed over 80 new store openings across both Westfield centres.

“We anticipate further growth in the beauty, medical and wellness sectors throughout this year, as we continue in our commitment to creating best-in-class destinations and exceptional customer experiences.”
