This was our first time at Gunwharf Quays and we were totally amazed at the money spent on this development. It helped that it was a very hot day, the whole place was buzzing. We walked around the whole development and loved the whole shopping experience. There is plenty of room to shop, eat and drink without feeling part of... More

Somewhere over the last year or so it has changed from being a retail outlet place for bargains to main stream shopping. That's fair enough but it is a shame. We primarily go for the restaurants which are plentiful and varied and the cinema which is large and many screened. Parking is easy but getting in there is sometimes a... More

Great day out, you have shops, a mini funfair, the views and plenty of places to eat. We ended up going here for two days just strolling around, popping in and out of the shops and just relaxing. It was relaxing, and our 9 year old who doesn't like shopping even got himself some bargains.

You are going to spend the whole day shopping here. So many outlet stores, so many things to shop for and the prices are very affordable. There is Gap, Ralph Lauren, Timberland, Bose, Sunglass Hut, Swarovski...and many more. There are also many cafes and restaurants, so take a break between shopping and have a glass of wine or coffee and... More

We had visited Gunwharf for a very nice snacky meal at la Tasca and we had decided to pop in for a browse and shopping . We visited the first newsagent to buy some English newspapers and stuff and wanted to use a contactless card only to be informed that there would be a 10 p surcharge on using it.... More

We were not aware that surcharges were being implemented by the Newsagent in the Centre and therefore we will need to investigate this further.

Gunwharf Quays is no longer the shopping place it used to be. It now looks like a London Shopping Centre with plenty of posh shops and none of the everyday shops with great prices.

A plentiful selection of stores (all outlet) but can be limited to sizes and stock not normally online or currently available. Saying that you can find a bargain. Parking available and loads of places to eat. The Marks and Spencer outlet store was dreadful, it felt like an up market jumble sale full of very frumpy clothes, the Nike store... More
