“Excellent selection”
Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

Very few shopping centers are good for everyone, except this one, it has everything,due to its size you're never fighting through crowds, its very well laid out and clean. Just 15 min walk from the train station at Temple Meads, what more could you want.

“Great selection of shops”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

My friend and I decided to do our christmas shopping in Bristol this year so we made a weekend of it as we live in South Wales. Not as large a shopping centre as cardiff but it's nice for a change and there are a lot more shops than just this complex as it is right next door to The Galleries and Broadmead. Always very busy and loads of places to eat. If you like typical cafe food at really good prices, visit Butlers in the food court on the first floor of the Galleries - the food there is excellent!!!!

“Huge Shopping Complex”
Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

This is very large shopping complex with plenty of shopping options.

Seems to be a very active location as when we were there they had artificial grass, deck chairs and large screens showing Wimbledon. I'm sure there must me events organised through out the year.

The shopping area is so large I would recommend at least an hour or two to wander around.

There are also food options in the centre.

“Easy shopping”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

We were staying at a nearby hotel and found this area a handy place to wander around with plenty of restaurants and movie theatres if you have time for that. Good mixture of department stores and other shops in area. Relaxing shopping due to no traffic and plenty of space and it leads to the mall street shopping again with no traffic but this area not so good in rain as no verandas outside shops.

“Yes, a 4 star for a shopping center”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

I very seldom provide any reviews of shopping centers, but this one is worth the scribble.
I was really impressed how the circus encompassed the shops. The glass like roof is not only great architecture, but makes the shopping experience somehow different, simply combines old-time street shopping with new-style mega mall approach.

Nice variety of shops and restaurants.
