Very sparse offering of real antique items (over 100 years) very little furniture a sort of glorified charity shop springs to mind. Cafe too expensive and only one toilet. Staff helpful but clearly over stretched. Excellent stamp dealer with lots of bargains to be found. Visited a couple of times stock very rarely changes. Ground floor has to be the best with a delightful clock dealer who knows her stuff. Please more antiques and less collectables. Management at centre non existent. Had to ask for toilet roll.

This is nothing like the antiques centre before they built that awful Quays Centre.

Downstairs has afew nice things, but it is rather small, and didn't appreciate being closely followed the whole time by the security guard, even though he could have watched me fom a distance. Second floor is like a jumble sale with glass cabinets. The amount of books is ridiculous, not even old/famous/rare books, just your everyday second hand books that everyone already has on their bookcase at home.

Didn't bother to make it to the next floor ..

Wow! We could have spent hours there! 3 floors of antiques and collectables and a lovely cafe serving wonderful food! It is crammed with hundreds of lovely things to buy. Bargain hunt would love it!

I love this place, there is something for everyone's price range here. I found some lovely pieces here cheaper than my local antiques centre. Well worth a visit

we usually visit our local antiques centre, but found this one to be a lot more organised, and easy to find what you are looking for. a lovely little cafe serving food and drink as well
