On a recent trip to visit family we pooped into the Designer Outlet and scooped some bargains After a burger and a shake at the american themed diner we had a stroll around the mall. I scooped some absolute bargains at Ted Baker and a couple of other stores. The cadbury outlet was a must for the girlfriend. The place... More

We were surprised when we arrived as a lot of improvements have been made since our last visit. The food court is much better and once all units are up and running will be good. I love how the old railway feel is still there with machinery on show and the new circular part is light and bright. The little... More

It's an outlet centre so there are lots of high street chains selling last year's goods at knockdown prices. Once you know that you can't go wrong. Parking is only a quid so even if you just visit for a wander about it won't break the bank.

Visited today after a few months, has had a facelift, looks very good and plenty more different shops. Most of the major high street shops in one place. Well worth visiting if in Swindon.

The parking is very cheap, £1 for the day, but the shops are average. The overall shopping experience has certainly improved since the recent investment/refurbishment but there is something lacking, the atmosphere feels vacant. The farmers market on a Sunday, outside the north car park, is nice; however I understand this is to change location outwith the outlet in March.

The centre itself is very modern and clean. The shops are average. Some are good, like the superdry shop but others are not so good - the john Lewis is awful. There a few good cafes and restaurants onsite. I wouldn't return, even if I was in the area.

Pros: easy, very cheap parking (£1 per day) (though I got lost in some horrible Swindon road works). Good choice of places to eat including Wagamamas and Pizza Express (though 20 min queues for all of them at lunchtime). Lots of shops, obviously...good range of clothing shops such as Ghost, Coast, LK Bennet. Cons: really bad selection of clothes in... More
