  • Somewhat impaired by the new glass roof and other changes going on but still a first rate shopping experience. Actually, we only walked through there from the bus to get to the marvellous tool-shop, Mackays on the far side this time, coming back by a different route, but all the good memories came back.
  • Very nice shopping centre. It is not massive but for me, it is enough. It has the cinema on the second floor plus Bella Italia. Outside the Grafton you have plenty of nice places where to have some food after your shopping. Really nice!
  • Staff are friendly and efficient. Store's well organized and set-out. I'm grateful. :)
  • Not a bad shopping centre, it's getting an upgrade but shops wernt that good Beofre as not much variety as mainly all phone shops or woman's clothing. Hopefully after the upgrade it will look better as roof allways leeks and hopefully a bigger variety of shops :)
  • Modern shopping centre in Cambridge, John Lewis is the biggest store with many of the usual suspects.
