“Pretty Layout”
Review of Conkers

Ranked #2 of 4 Shopping in Basingstoke
Attraction details
Reviewed November 26, 2013

The entrance is disappointing as it looks from the car park like a industrial building which it is. A vast warehouse with a brick facade.

But once through the doors you are treated to spacious pretty displays in a colour and design on each. This gives one many ideas of ways of enhancing our home and garden.

As I went in late November there were very few plants but an abundance of gifts, christmas lights etc and some toys for the children and outside Christmas trees and pots.

The tea room also looked pretty and had plenty of toasted sandwiches cakes and small lunch meals.

Overall the reason for going in December would be for gifts and Christmas trees etc and not for plants.

Conkers is just off of the A30 and as well as flowers and plants nicely laid outside the building, there is a small but very efficient tea room/coffee shop with delicious cakes and toasties.

Although it's 2 mins. walk from the A30, just browsing around the outside area and looking across at the well-maintained grassed area, you feel like you are in nice surroundings.

The centre is well-stocked for buying gifts and presents for adults and children.
