  • Stopped here for a couple of hours on the way home and was pleasantly surprised - lots of nice shops with some good coffee shops. 
  • Just visited the Royal Quays on a shopping trip. The car park is spacious, and right beside the shopping centre, so no great walk at all. My son was heading for Cotton Traders, and I was making for Ma...  more »

  • A pleasant retail park, with a variety of brands, including Nike, Cotton Traders and Trespass. You will also find that the parking is free and the prices are considerably lower than Newcastle and other places in the area. For example, I bought a Barbarians rugby shirt from Cotton Traders for £10; knocked down from £50.
  • The Nike shop is pretty good if you want some cheap branded trainers. Other than that I find the place cold and uninviting. A bit of a white elephant.
  • A range of high street shops offering discounts. The items on offer are sometimes limited in size variation and may be old season. It still offers the chance to get a bargain.
  • Huge range of outlet stores offering up to 70% off the highstore price. There are some nice places to eat and drink. If your looking for a gift for whatever occasion you will find it here WITHOUT paying a fortune!
  • Some shops like Nike that are worth a visit. Also has a couple of coffee and eating options including Subway.
