there's something for everyone here. a good place to spend the day with the family. There was also the Metro Gnomes for kids entertainment. Parking signage could have be better and clearer. it was our first time here and looking for the yellow mall was quite a task as we found out it was right towards the end

This place has everything you could ever want from a shopping centre. It's a shopaholics dream. Biggest centre in the UK I have been to. Lots of restaurants in the yellow zone. Loved this place, can't wait to visit again!

Fantastic range of shops, food outlets and leisure facilities. The free parking makes it much cheaper also too than Newcastle or Sunderland. Love this place! Highly recommended.
