Approaching from the Bridgewater Canal the building particularly at night reminds you of the Taj Mahal. A nice walk along a long nice corridor into the shopping area. Good shops, fab food hall, lots of seats.

Hi In my opinion it is no more expensive than other shopping malls like Meadowhall. There is a Selfridges store which is top end retail so more expensive.
