  • We came here before our ferry went back to Germany for shopping here. That was worth nice totally clean and tidy everything. Many shops with lots of choice and good offers. Here you can spend well a few hours of time and great food and drink coffee or something.

  • Spent a few hours here looking and waiting for the ferry, plenty of cafes for lunch, great assortment of shops if your in the market to shop. Plenty of seating to sit and entertainment for children . 
  • There are quite a few great places here with great deals. I believe we've decided to go here for kids shoes from now on, and the royal quays now boasts one of the only gap stores in the north east.
  • Well kept strip mall which actually squiqqles all over the place. A selection of everything you'd get in an actual mall. An open air feeling to the place, so there is sometimes access to coffee and the likes at Costa outdoors. Ample parking provided.
  • Great bargains to be had, and on a nice day it's a lovely walk around. There are always things to do and see going on in the little garden areas.
  • Over rated as it's just a handful of shops. Also prices no better than anywhere else. Still cheaper online. Parking is free though so that's great. OK for a flying visit.
  • To be honest the shops here are not as good as they were, marks and Spencer have moved out as have a couple of others. Just not as good as it was
