With over 35 years of history and an unrivalled database, Trevor Wood Associates stands as a leading authority in the UK's out-of-town retail and leisure and shopping centre property market. Our extensive datasets cover over 13,000 current and proposed retail and leisure developments, providing in-depth insights accumulated over decades. In 2022, we unveiled our Definitive Guide insight platform, granting subscribers access to this substantial database online.

Recognised as a trusted source of information in the retail industry, we disseminate our findings through regular publications, webinars, and contributions to industry journals. Our portfolio includes two annual authoritative guides: The Definitive Guide to Retail & Leisure Parks and Going Shopping - The Definitive Guide to Shopping Centres. These publications, based on our extensive dataset, offer comprehensive reviews of retail warehousing, retail parks, leisure schemes, shopping centres, and factory outlet developments nationwide. They provide valuable market information, including vacancy rates, tenant trends, leading regional players, property owners, and managing agents.

The Definitive Guide to Retail & Leisure Parks is renowned for its authoritative analysis of 1,700 retail parks and leisure schemes, covering vital aspects such as vacancy rates, tenant dynamics, and property ownership hierarchies. And Going Shopping - The Definitive Guide to Shopping Centres serves as the go-to resource for shopping centre and factory outlet analysis, encompassing over 900 schemes. It includes comprehensive reviews of each shopping centre in the UK, recent changes, and a list of the top 500 shopping centres.

All of our guides can now be accessed conveniently through our Definitive Guide platform, where you can explore our extensive insights, harness the power of our comprehensive database, and stay informed with the most authoritative resources in the UK retail and leisure property industry.

Our clients include surveyors, developers, owners, retailers, and others from across the retail and property industries, consultancy firms and local government.
