I like shops as much as the next woman, but visiting shopping centres with my other half is a nightmare. Nowhere to sit, and then he wanders off while I'm in a shop. So many avenues and alleys he could disappear down, it's too stressful. That's why Trentham Shopping Village is such a pleasure to visit. It's layout means we don't get separated, and there's plenty of other distractions that mean we don't lose each other. The range of shops is interesting, even if we aren't buying, and the variety is just right. Not too long ago there was a danger that the refreshments offering was getting too same-y but this seems to have passed. The garden centre is also complimentary to the village, however parking can be difficult. Even at 3pm on a rainy cold Sunday, spaces were limited.
Yes, some of the shops are expensive but then this isn't a local high street but a destination. Personally I think this is a much needed addition to the area - and clearly I'm not alone in this!
