  • Absolutely love this place. The atmosphere is fully charged with excitement. It's always bubbling. Enough outlets to get whatever you want. Polo, Adidas, Timberland, Fossil, Gap, Next to name a few. Restaurants aren't short here either. You've got Chinese buffets, Exotic dining, Burger king et all. There's an arcade centre there also and a cinema. Oh just next to it is the Spinnaker tower. The view? Fantastic view too the open waters, especially in some of the restaurants. And when you're done shopping and viewing, there's even a museum near by. It's Pretty much a whole day of fun if you go here. Definitely worth a visit and a revisit and many more visits.
  • Gun Wharf has improved a great deal over the years. Standard of outlets has improved. A few years since I was last there but pleased to say Next is no longer there, what nightmare that place was, full of tat. Also the facilities were very clean and a pleasure to visit. Came away with lovely tan suede shoes from Mint Velvet but not the gorgeous tan suede bag from Michael Kors
  • It's quite nice here and you can occasionally find some good deals, but mostly in M&S or some of sports shops. You are still better off shopping online to get the best deals, which is a bit unfortunate. Worth a day/half-day out if you also go for a walk along the coast.
  • A multitude of eateries and a few odd boutique shops make a nice addition to the main (cinema) attraction. Parking is plentiful and free. Nice harbour views when dining.
  • Nice place, with a decent selection of shops but is a bit pricey. Looks nice too and the parking is next level with a series of lights showing you where is available. Some nice places to eat especially round by the spinnaker tower.
