“Needs to fill empty stores”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

Visited yesterday,a Wednesday,it was quiet given the day, not all the shops are occupied so not a lot there as yet but the dining area is quite good though with normal outlets, Frankie and Bennys, Wagamama etc. Parking can be expensive so be careful about the time you spend there as your bargains could be costing more than you think,but it is London so nothing new there, travel by train if you can to avoid the parking, expect it is busier at weekend

“Had a nice few hours shopping”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

This is a typical outlet centre. No different to USA ones only smaller. Got a few bargains and would go back in the summer. Watch out for the manageress in Viners she has a false smile and a brash attitude.

“A local's opinion of the new Designer Outlet”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

I'm a Wembley local, living a few streets away from the Designer Outlet. Here are my views:

Cons: parking rather expensive for a day out, very poor signage for carpark & for walking to Outlet, a wind tunnel, cold & wet on British rainy days, limited selection of shops, not as cheap as other outlets I've been to and eerily deserted in bad weather/ weekdays

Pros: A good choice of modern restaurants, new cinema, new children's indoor softplay centre, some good bargains can be found, £3 car parking for 2 hours is not too bad, (but is very limiting if you want to make a day out of it), it should be a nice place to visit in good weather & it is busy on weekends/holidays. My family frequently eat at the restaurants there.The new nearby Civic Centre is a nice place to visit as well - good library, free wifi & coffee shops INDOORS!

It is possible to find free street parking around Wembley on non-event days (event days are resident only). It won't be right next to the outlet, but walkable. Or take the tube, bus, or only stay for 2 hours!

“Meal out”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

Poor Car park entrance signage, deserted car park, once again poor signage inside the car park, directions up/ down within car park easy to overlook, low corner bollard scrapped the car, budget feel to this outlet, disappointing and expensive visit.
