What a refreshing change from the boring normal High Street names. Henry's card and Gifts shop was bright clean and with a great selection of cards and gifts that were fun and different. Friendly staff, who seem to enjoy being there.

Hi worth a visit if you come to Poole usual shops and more.
Well layed out and easy to get around, right next door to bus station and approx 200 meters from the train station. Plenty of shops as you go towards High Street.
Just be careful where you park as the traffic wardens are keener than in London I think they must be on a bonus.
PLACE TO WATCH OUT FOR IS ON THE HIGH STREET there is approx 8 spaces that you think is OK but read the small signage and dont park during the day they also have a warden who drives around double parks so nowhere is safe.
Dont know where the wardens come from but I got a ticket in less than 5 mins must have cctv watching and I am not the only one who has noticed this.
Bike night last month 2 wardens ticketed 6 cars and were laughing as they walked back to there people carrier which was parked on loading bay.

This shopping centre is fairly small but it does offer big names like next, m and s, Bhs, beales, river island, top shop and primark to name a few. this is along with other independent stores. There's places to eat and to get coffee and a car park attached so you don't get wet if it's raining. A good place to visit, and great for you if you don't like huge overwhelming malls.

Typical shopping centre, not a lot of shops as it is very spacious. The outdoor part looked very dated, as was the car park, although this was cheap and easy to use (its the first multi-story car park where I've been able to park on the ground level!) Use level B for step-free access to the shops, this is where the disabled spaces are, although level A involves a five-step climb to the lift!
