This is an a nice shopping centre that has everything you need. Good range of shops, eateries, kiddies areas and spacious. However, I would be reluctant to return as Car parking is an issue. Watch out when using the Car Park at rear of the site near Penzance Drive. The Car Park exit is an ongoing problem to the unfamiliar... More

Having visited a number of these outlets across the country I think this is the most limited in size. That said it was pleasant and well laid out. Based inside old railway building with some interesting original features retained. Charge for parking but that may be something to do with sharing car park with other businesses. A nice enough place... More

The scale of the outlet, gives a great sense of the extent of the engineering works of the GWR, and the architects have made brilliant use of the remaining machinery and a heritage locomotive that has pride of place. There is a great play area for children, the whole place is immaculately clean and parking charges are reasonable and refunded... More

As the old railway station has been used this is a great place to visit, there is an old steam train as you go through the doors and a lot of the outlets have kept some of the old fixtures. There is plenty of parking at a reasonable price and plenty of food and drink outlets. Kids are well catered... More

Shopping here is great. Ample parking although getting out was a little congested in the evening rush hour (5 to 6pm). Don't miss the steam museum next door when you have had enough of bargain hunting. Also plenty of places to eat.

A nice afternoon shopping. Some good bargains and reasonably priced parking. Didn't visit the food hall, but looked a varied selection if not a few too many coffee bars.

This Mall has had a recent makeover and is now worth a visit. Plenty of car parking at £1 for up to 4 hours. Not that I think you should expect to pay to park when going shopping. Plenty of shops & food outlets. Also access to the Steam Museum.
