    We have been here another round before our ferry departure and were eating and shopping. From our point of view a perfect pastime to bridge such waiting times :-)

    M & S have closed, too many coffee shops, shopping average at best. A poor Outlet centre. There are much better places to shop  more »
  • Love it here. Especially Next and the Nike shop. Got some great bargains.
  • It's definitely gone downhill since the M&S outlet went and really... a Poundland outlet at a discount retail park - is it "Less than a Poundland"? Love, love, love Unique Boutique though and you can't go wrong with a Works outlet. Shame the tourist information has gone bearing in mind the proximity to the ferry terminal. Whole thing needs a makeover!
  • Has some good options in terms of stores but its getting pretty dated. Hasn't changed much in the last five years.
  • Major bargains. The nike store was amazing, hurache ultra for £35, not rubbish colour either. T shirts for £8 again not lurky styles, i honestley never seen nike stuff so cheap. That cheap that if it wasn't a nike outlet you would think its fake or stolen.
  • Used to be a fantastic place to shop, but recently the place has lost a lot of good shops which have closed or moved.
