“Variety of collectables and antiques.”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

This is part of the Gloucester docks renovation project. Parking is in the docks car park or in the neighbouring outlet shopping car park. There is an inexpensive cafe in the centre or there are restaurants and cages in the area within an easy walk.
Items are from several dealers are displayed in cabinets and shop spaces. There are many types of collectables and antiques. Some dealers are better prepared than others so there are bargains to be had.
The website is well worth a look for the serious buyer, but I prefer to wander around the displays and to be entertained and informed by the helpful staff.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

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.

“Dissapointed.”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

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 ..
