  • Slowly shrinking shopping centre at the start of town which is beginning to really show its age and can't really compete with the newer St. David's 2. It's a good location, and contains great amenities in EasyGym, Premiere Cinemas and Caffe Nero and Tesco, but lots of empty stores as brands move elsewhere in Cardiff.
  • It's a great and vibrant shopping centre that offers a wide range of products and services to make sure that you have a great day
  • Pop into carphone warehouse the staff there are amazing and really helpful got me some quality deals in my years of visiting. They are really knowledgeable about most tech even wifi routers and broadband just pop in and have a chat with them best carphone warehouse I've visited so far! Make sure you mention that dan told you to visit!! The Asda there is lovely too its a little gem of a shopping centre i'd say a must visit.
  • Not many shops anymore. Great for Tesco and pound world , though.
  • I love spending time here i mean where else would u get food drinks shopping groceries or dresses or shoes or cosmetics or jewelry or medicine ....phuuuuuuyyyyuu so much n more...
