  • A nice place with a few shops and outlets, however don't expect prices to be much cheaper than any other retail store. The Nike outlet is by far my favourite. 
  • There used to be a lot more choice but M & S pulled out and subsequently it has gone downhill. Still if you are in the area it's worth a look but I wouldn't go out of my way. 
  • Free parking and a good selection of shops. Bought a new bed and the staff there where fantastic. Plenty of choices for coffee and a snack.

  • 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.
