Lots of designer outlets with reduced prices and when we went there were also lots of sales on and got some real bargains. Plenty of places to sit around the site and several food outlets to choose from. Well worth a visit, transport links are very good with bus or train and there is a huge car park.

I live locally to Freeport, and couldn't imagine a world without Freeport! It offers a vast variety of things to do in Braintree - Cinema (which we have unlimited cards for), bowling alley, numerous restaurants and shopping centre! The shops vary from Hollister to Adidas, to Ted Baker and Molten Brown. Not overly great, but big discounts can be found... More

The pool is always freezing cold! Would not recommend going with children! The staff (life guards) are miserable looking!

Thank you for your recent review. We will pass your comments on to the management team at the swimming pool, as this is run independently from the centre. More

A victim of its own success, there are often cars queuing and car parks almost full. The shops can get crowded too. The saving grace is that there is a fair selection of mainly clothes shops, and there are bargains galore.

Great outlet stores, good parking, lots of food choices. Only downside is they close at 6pm most days

This is a relatively small outdoor shopping mall with a wide range of shops offering discounts from high street prices. There is a Marks and Spencers outlet, Gap, Next and lots more. Have a good look round and you should find some bargains. There is plenty of free parking, and food and drink is available. This is all on one... More

I quite like it here it is nice to walk around, I never really come away with much shopping though I just like to have a browse and occasionally may see a bargain. I go here a few times a year as I don't live too far from it. I wouldn't travel a great distance to go here but they... More

If you're looking for the good shops, a lot of them are here with some really good prices. I got Barbour polo top reduced from £60 to £30 to Anne one, but we've had many bargains here. Would also strongly recommend a visit to Prezzo where the pasta is amazing.

The centre needs a RL and other shops like Bicester has! There are other usual brand names but the place is just missing it. The style of the centre is excellent it is just you expect to see more brands. Parking is easy here.
