  • Great mix of clothes shops to cater for most tastes. However, men are catered for better than women I felt. Worth the 100 mile round trip for me when I'm buying a good amount; the massive savings more than cover travel costs. Good mix of food options too. The dockyards are a welcome distraction for the kids, you can get a free site ticket with entrance to two of the boathouses. The tower is expensive for what it is, however look out for offers, because once you're up there you'll be glad you did it.
  • Gunwharf Quays has a good range of shops (best check these out on the Gunwharf Quays web site). They call themselves 'outlets' and some, such as M&S, live up to that but others seem more like normal shops. There are also restaurants and cafes, if you are looking for something to eat, and a cinema. Though there is an underground car park with excellent red/green indicators to help find a space, it is not cheap to park. If you can, get the train to Portsmouth Harbour and walk round to Gunwharf.
  • The mall was designed quite nicely and it was very clean. I felt safe walking around and even though there are many clubs, security made sure everything was kept under control. There is a wide array of designer stores but the thing about these types of malls is that the clothing are usually defected or out of season or items that couldn't sell in the main stores so I didn't find too much but my gf did in GUESS. There is also a bowling alley, theater and many restaurants to eat from.
  • Large development of chain restaurants and sports clothing outlets. Commercial and proud of it, it does not do subtle. Many bars and restaurants face the entrance to the harbour, allowing an interesting view of passing ships. It gets very busy on sunny days. If you like shell suits and the Slug and Lettuce then you'd love it.
  • Nice shopping centre. easy to park nearby in Gunwharf Quays car park.lots of branded shops depending on what brand you like. take plenty of money with you as I got carried away with my shopping as so many nice fashion outlets to choose from.
