Around 160,000 people visited the Westfield London shopping centre in White City on its opening day yesterday.
The shopping centre opened its doors at 9am and stores traded until 10pm. Developer Westfield said that retailers reported positive footfall and sales figures, with many saying that the centre was busier than expected.
Some reported sales targets being exceeded, and a positive mood among their staff and customers.
A Westfield spokesman said: "We are delighted with the opening day's trade. The response from shoppers and retailers has been excellent and we are all looking forward to a great weekend."
