All good High Street stores under a glass canopy nicely situated off English street. Really like all the brickwork and good paving as it gives a traditional feeling. Clean, bright with nice street cafes in the dry.

Pleasant shopping arcade with good decorations for Christmas. There was a wide range of shops. The toilets had 6 basins and driers to match the number of toilets which is most unusual, it's usually 2 driers and 12 toilets.

The Shopping Centre is not much different from other cities, the same ‘old’ shops as most other cities, but the benefit being its undercover. I don’t recall seeing any empty premises which is a credit to the city. The centre has been tastefully decorated for...More

Debenhams at one end and Primark at the other with a good variety of shops in between so presumably there's something for everybody. Most of the shops can be found in many high streets but there are a few independent retailers and these are worth...More

The Lanes is your typical city centre shopping arcade. There are a good mix of high street chain shops. It seems to have escaped the fate of many shopping centres as there only seems to be one of two empty units. There is plenty of...More

This is a standard UK shopping centre... the usual high street stores under one 'roof' (or in 'lanes' in this case, which makes it a little more interesting), and you don't have to walk for miles to get anywhere. There was also good parking
