Pretty grim, but then, isn't most high street shopping these days?

Shopping here is an exercise in patience. I suppose there's a good choice if you don't mind the pushing and shoving and the crowds, the blaring music and the artificial lights... read more

Always find things that I am looking for, nice open shopping centre, like how it is open later into the evening as a walk through if the weather is bad. Has a really nice feel to the place!!

This was a lot smaller than I expected but still worth a visit. I just went for a browse not with an intention to buy. I enjoyed browsing and was not tempted to buy anything. Being undercover its especially good in inclement weather . Worth seeing for yourself.

It has everything you need from clothes to gadgets including an Apple Store! Some food outlets and juice bars. Was very busy!

I am not very good at shopping but this Centre does make the experience a little easier. Without exception, I have always found the people working in the various units to be very polite and helpful. However, I think the car parking charges are ridiculously high, to such an extent that one thinks they are trying to put motorists off... More

On holiday near Penzance and it was a rainy day so decided to travel to here... Disappointed!! Hardly any shops. I'm sure there were as many coffee shops as there were shops! Not worth the 2 hour travel!

Shopping here is an exercise in patience. I suppose there's a good choice if you don't mind the pushing and shoving and the crowds, the blaring music and the artificial lights. It's basically your every day shopping centre that you see the whole stretch of the country. There's nothing special, nothing unique, nothing individual about it. Much nicer shops to... More

Nothing that catches the eye, no quality originally or flair. Several very expensive eating stalls. Not a good place unless you need shelter from the rain.

Great shopping mall so many good shops to look at lots of food places there is no need to leave the mall all day because everything is there for you. Easy to find car park attached to the mall reasonable car park fees and right in town if you need to go to any other shops.

Staying in Cornwall , weather was not good so decided to go to this shopping centre. It is clean and lots of interesting shops, and plenty of places to eat. Got lots of bargains. As you leave the centre it leads onto lots of other shops. Well worth a visit.
