If you add the Steam Museum and National Trust you could spend the day but on this Sunday it was retail. £1.00 for 5 hours parking was very welcome as was the Farmers Market selling local food, and with a few samples! In to the Outlet and was a little disappointed as they are doing a refit. Does not affect... More

Set in the historic Great Western Locomotive Sheds the first impression is the smell of coal however the facility is clean and modern. Car Parking is excellent with a huge reasonably priced car park plenty of disabled and family spaces, disabled and pushchair access is excellent and there is a small childrens playground outside an indoor facility is being built....

We went from London after reading rave reviews and it was a pleasant day out wandering around the stores but not many bargains. The stores selling chocolates were the same price as the supermarkets and in some cases I can get it cheaper at sainsburys. We did purchase a coat for my husband and some shoes for me from Pavers...

Great shopping centre, some good bargains to be had and it is all under cover (a bonus for those rainy days) it is a bit of a nightmare at the moment because of the refit but if you can look past that it is a nice enough place to do a spot of shopping on a sat afternoon.

Looked forward to a day out as we have previously managed to find lots of good bargains. Unfortunately, as soon as you enter there is boarding and half the units are empty. Food court is small with only the usual corporate suspects present but there was hardly anyone about so plenty of room. A lot of stores were closing or... More

We love visiting this designer outlet, we feel the bargains to be found here are much better than Bicester Village and McArthur Glen Bridgend so it's definitely worth a visit. We always come home with our car full of goodies. We haven't really been bothered by the renovations as we know it will improve the outlet and should be completed... More

I had an easy journey on the train from Oxford and the outlet centre was well sign posted from the station, about a 20 minute walk. Good mix of shops although perhaps slightly more bag, shoe and home shops although there were some very good bargins in all and I was pleased with the purchases I made. Especially good if... More

The outlet is currently undergoing some changes however we found it easy to navigate and well organised. The shops are well stocked despite their small size and there are some great bargains to be had! Extremely reasonable parking with spaces available all day when we visited on a Saturday. Definitely worth a visit over Gunwarf Quays! It is worth noting... More

Visited this place last year around the same time of year. We located the centre with no issue and parked easily which cost nothing as we spent over £100 otherwise less than 5hours is only a £1. The centre is clean and some of the shops are much better value than others. The majority of staff in stores are very... More

Have been meeting a friend here for a few years. A nice convenient place for us to have something to eat and do some shopping. We used to meet for a cooked breakfast and coffee from one of the restaurants in the food hall. Followed later by a tea in a nice little coffee shop. Sadly both have gone!!! We... More
