Lots of lovely shops with some beautiful things for Christmas. Must admit some shop prices a bit silly . Molten Brown was a must on my list and was served by the same lovely lady as last time. Emma was very helpful and very knowledgeable with great recommendations . I would actually recommend asking for her, as she takes great... More

Freeport is visited by people from many areas in Essex and further afield. At Christmas it is incredibly busy and car parking is at a premium - as it is on many weekends during the year. It is best to go to the rear car park which is not so easy to find as the main car park. Entrance to... More

Not as I thought it would be. Not really an outlet where you get bargains. Make sure you wear a coat as is all outside. Would not go again.

There's a nice variety of shops here and you can get some bits greatly reduced. It's a nice layout and family friendly. They also have a variety of places to grab a coffee/lunch, so it's easy to spend a couple of hours there. Plus parking is free up to 6 hours, so you can't really complain.

Really disappointing, supposed to be an outlet mall where you get bargains. It used to be great. Now shops selling last years stock at not really discounted prices. Would I go again, yes but not in a hurry.

First time visitor here. Enjoyed browsing the shops which I thought were very good. I liked the layout of the place and the bargain hunting. There are places to stop for a coffee break if required - Costa and a Starbucks and places to eat too. Plenty of free parking for up to 6 hours. I hope to visit here... More

Took a little drive to Braintree Freeport for a bit of shopping! I haven't been for ages so it was good to potter around the shops! I wasn't looking for anything in particular but still manage to walk away with some purchases! It doesn't take long to walk round 2 hours? But it's nice as you can go for lunch... More
