Lewisham Shopping Centre, formerly Riverdale Centre, is a shopping mall located in Lewisham, London, England. The centre is the major shopping centre in the London Borough of Lewisham. Also part of the complex is the Lewisham House office tower, formerly occupied by Citibank. There are proposals to convert this building to flats.

The centre is located in Lewisham town centre and was built over the former streets Rhyme Road and Romer Avenue. The official address is on Molesworth Street (a dual carriageway section of the A21). The car park is located on the upper levels. Facilities at the centre include public toilets with baby changing, photobooths and ATMs.

Since the Docklands Light Railway extension from Island Gardens reached Lewisham the centre experienced an increase in customers.

Stores

The largest stores in the centre are Sainsbury's, Marks and Spencer, H&M and Argos.

The Model Market is a street food market at the south end of the site, which opens in the summer months.
