We love freeport and are regular visitors. We like it on the whole. We also regularly use Starbucks, worldwide and come to expect a certain level of hygiene and ambience from this multimillion pound organisation. The Starbucks in Freeport is a disgrace. Large canteen style seating, that has had the same airport waiting area decor for the last ten years.... More

We visited on a Saturday, it was a rainy & cold day so maybe that's why it was not as good as I expected. We were disappointed with the choice of shops and not much in the way of men clothes shops. The stuff in Hollister seemed to be specially made for the outlet stores. Each time we visit there... More

Having visited Freeport in Ellesmere Port, was looking forward to visiting Braintree to grab some bargains, however was soon disappointed. The layout was not easy to navigate even though it was relatively small in size. The variety of shops was disappointing with only a few worth visiting. The Nike and Adidas shop mainly seemed to be selling running trainers, Holister... More

We visit Freeport a few times a year and always manage to buy something. We tend to stick to the same shops including Nike, Adidas, Hallmark, Trespass, Mountain Warehouse, Billabong and The Works but there are many others there so you would think there is something for everyone. Freeport is fairly small but still a good size and you can... More

Well must admit I had never been before, I guess I'm used to Malls, so I didn't really like the outdoor theme, but having said that it had a great array of shops and we found everything we wanted, it's not cheap which surprised me as it is supposed to be an 'outlet' mall but like I said we found...

You do not go to Braintree freeport for its aesthetic beauty. Layout is uninspiring and most of the outlet frontages do not help in this respect.Also the piped music is not suitable for most of the clientele most of the week. As a recent reviewer has noted there is quite a turnover on some sites. However the usual suspects remain... More

There are now four bedding shops in Freeport! Ridiculous!! The decent clothing shops have mostly gone. We went there this week and yet another one has closed down. Staff have said that the rentals are so ridiculously high that it is not worth having a shop there. You would think that the owners of Freeport want to provide as large... More

We visited on a wet, rainy day so maybe that made it not as good as expected? However we found it poorly laid out, and it wasn't easy to find a store that you'd seen earlier. We were also disappointed with the choice of stores which was a bit more down-market than we expected. Parking was OK.

Best place around for bargains. Lots of good shops. Clothes, outdoor gear, shoes, kitchen, linen, handbags, luggage, crockery. Coffee shops all within a traffic free compact area. Plenty of free parking and toilets. Would highly recommend it.

Thank Anne M
