Located a short walk from the town centre so easy to get to on foot... some great shops at competitive prices and some great restaurants, just walking through the outlet is great even if there is no intention of buying anything...

Waggis and Pizza Express are on the way but until then you'll have to put up with KFC which is currently the sole outlet in the food court. That's unless you're prepared to put up with the queues at the coffee shops. The shop selection are good, highlights for me were Lindt and Samsonite.

The main disappointment here was the food that was available - as in virtually none. Unless you like KFC. The Food Quarter has a KFC in it! Very poor choice of food and we looking forward to a nice lunch out. Looks like there are plans for a Pizza Express and Wagamama, but that didn't help us today. Not many... More

A good selection of shops for discounts on well known brands. Couple of usual coffee shops for a break between shopping.

Popped over and met in laws as fancied a trip out and weather forecast not good. Had a nice relaxed shop and stayed dry and warm. Did some good shopping - Le Creuset, Tog 24, Superdry and Crocs. Lots of good stuff at sensible prices. Farmers market outside with nice produce but weather awful. Tip - push along cars for... More

Swindon Designer Outlet is wonderfully furnished with high ceilings and steel frame work to strongly show it's railway factory history. There is a good number of top designer stores which are easy to locate as it is set out in a simple circular shape. There is a reasonable amount of places to grab something to eat such as KFC and...

Loads of shops, not too spread out, and under cover so if the weathers bad you don't get wet. Air conditioned, although not all the shops were. Loads of choice and excellent prices and plenty of food choices.

Having been to the steam museum, we ventured to here, but it was so crowded! Its undergoing a refurb, whuch I hope is to improve ventilation as it was hot and stuffy and crowded! I think previously these places were genuinely for where stores could sell on past seasons items, however they have cottoned on to this now, so there... More

The place didn't seem very well ventilated with little air conditioning on this hot day. There were an array of shops with the odd bargain to be had but I wouldn't rush back expecting discount after discount.
