We travel often with our son who is 15 months old , and spend Aprox 15 minutes waiting for... More

In this modern shopping centre you can get a meal in one of the restaurant by the river, going to the cinema and spend your time doing shopping just staying in the heart of the city

Good shopping and range of shops, however the parking pricing is expensive for the town. Their website says upto 1hr £1.50...we had to pop in and was under the hour only to be charged £3.
