“Nice shopping experience but car park charges leaves nasty taste in your mouth”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

This is the second time I have visited this shopping centre. It was a lovely day weather-wise however the car park very busy when we turned up. I remember the high car park charges from my last visit winter-time so my daughter &I made sure to pay attention to the time on the ticket to ensure we did not go over by one minute and get stung again.
The shops were nice and quiet as it was beginning of week and the coffee shops and restaurants although busy were not heaving.
There is a good selection of shops with many going into summer sale already,
We estimated we would get back to car park about ten minutes before our time was up for the 5hrs however when I paid, the ticket clocked that I had only just made it by one minute until it clocked another hour charges. This is outrageous and I am sure many people have just had to pay up and be ripped off. There are probably long stay car parks in other areas of Bristol however this one is very convenient for the shopping centre and restaurants. Be careful because the time your watch says will not be the same as the time on the car park ticket should you choose to park in Cabots Circus.

Great shopping district for all your retail therapy. Plenty of restaurants to have a good sit down meal, or to grab a quick snack.

Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

Cabot Circus is a lovely modern shopping centre with a real mixture of shops , and food places. There is a cinema on the top floor as well as a crazy golf course.
There are many restaurants to choose from. Toilets are clean and modern.

“Not your typical shopping mall”
Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

Don't really do shopping, but as I'm staying in Bristol I've been going out for a wander in the evenings, found this place and I'm very impressed, loads of shops, loads of restaurants and a cinema too.
