“Favourite place on earth”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Always fun to visit even if you don't have any money! Great if you need to buy an interesting gift for someone. I've had a few piercings here (in two different piercing shops) and I've never had any problems. Friendly staff, amazing clothes and art and some lovely vintage/antique shops as well as modern ones!

“Different, in a good way!”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

We visited Afflecks not knowing what to expect, and loved every second of it! If you're bored of the monotony of the high street and are looking for something a bit different to wear, this is the place to come. It's not just clothes either, there are so many gift ideas, even for those people who seem to have everything, I think I'll have to come back in December when I'm struggling for presents!

Pinkies, the 50s diner was also a highlight, you can sit at the window with a choice of shakes, rest your legs and watch the world go by. Brilliant.

“What a place”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Afflecks is like no where else I have ever visited. The important bits first:
If IT IS WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE - don't let the steps put you off, there is a ramp that can be put on the stairs to enable wheelchair users to get up, it is normally kept just inside the door. When we visited (Wife is a wheelchair user) the passenger lift was out of order but we were allowed to use the goods lift accompanied by a member of staff, who were always friendly. The shops are quirky, inexpensive, and independent. It is very much open plan to be careful you don't take goods out of one shop into another.

“Fantastic place to spend an afternoon!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Have been shopping at Afflecks for many years. It's a wonderful place to spend a few hours with so many wonderful shops and things to see. I visited the cafe on my most recent trip and the staff were so helpful and patient, as I had children in tow. Afflecks is a place for the young and old and there's definitely something for everyone.

“Amazing Wonderland!”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Came back to Affleck's for a wander after forgetting about it for several years.So glad I did!! The place is filled to bursting with amazing boutiques, outlets, creatives and more- all worthy of being there. The day we came there was entertainment on in the 50s style diner (not sure if this is a regular thing-it should be!!) so the atmosphere was absolutely buzzing. We stopped to have a milkshake and watch the delightful singing and dancing- really added to our visit. We then bought a few bits from various stalls but mainly it was great just being there, browsing and chatting with the friendly shop owners. Make a trip- it's great!
