“Average shopping”
Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

Tons of shops to keep you occupied for hours on end but not many food options. Usual high street stores with a very modern feel to it. Parking at the Apollo is the cheapest place around at £1.50 for 4 hours or £2 for 9 hours.

I wouldn't travel from far and wide to shop here as Manchester is far superior but worth looking around if you're nearby.

“Shops for everyone”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Liked all the different shops only negative was that it was exceptionally busy which was a little frightening for the children. It also could do with a few more eating places are these were packed to the rafters.

“Do not use the car park”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

The Centre states the car park is open till 11.30p.m but doesnt bother to mention the Shopping Centre closes well before 11.30 so we got back at 7.30 to find it closed with absolutely no advice on how to find an alternative entrance. Eventually the only solution was to get round the back , go up the ramp used for car entry which was a lengthy uphill climb. Get into car and then find that because workmen were all over the place carrying out repair work the exit ramps were closed ( again no advice this would be the case ) so after a devious drive round the car park with instructions provided by the workmen we managed to find our way out. From the time we arrived at the Centre's entrance to find it closed to the time we actually got out was 40 minutes !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Total and absolute incompetence on the part of the centre's management
