  • What a great shopping experience, the place is huge, with every kind of retail shop. the staff are awesome, pointing out the stores or facilities you require. Plenty of toilet areas, take a radar key if you are disabled to gain access. Parking is easy to achieve either on street or in the massive car park above the complex.
  • It's seen better days , not many shops exist here with many closing down. Best head to st David's for better choice
  • The Capital has had its day - What used to be the highlight of any young boy's Saturday in the days of the food court, Virgin, and a few other high end shops has now been resigned to what is essentially Tescos, a gym, and what feel like a series of popup shops. It's sad to see this once great shopping centre come to this as Cardiff seems obsessed with opening up more retail units than they have tenants for.
  • Not many shops. Although its saving grace is the cinema attached to it. £4 pound a ticket to see a film.
  • I remember this when it was a theater. I saw the likes of ROXY MUSIC (3)times here. The ALEX HARVEY BAND just after the Bay City Rollers played and the fans wrecked the first 3 rows of the seating. Anyway I shop here now for my accessories mainly
