  • Love this outlet. Lots to buy, with a host of various high street and mid range designer stores for you to browse. When you're ready to rest your weary feet there's a good choice of food outlets with varying price scales for whatever is left in your pocket. If you'd like a pint or a drink or two there's a pub and you can also stay over in local affordable hotels. Enjoy.
  • The place has everything for a whole day out. Shopping, eating, cinema, bowling alley and bars. Never seen the place empty and the management of the place is excellent. Plenty of security staff are on duty to make the place feel safe and secure. Views are spectacular from the spinnaker tower. Only downside is it is slightly on the expensive side but for a good day out its well worth a visit.
  • Nice, clean place. Easy to walk around and find from the train stations. Some good shops that are well known and also some that are less well know. Very close to the dock as well so there are some great views
  • Really popular retail outlet shopping and entertainment area. Loads of outlet units including Mint Velvet, Phase Eight, Weird Fish to name a few. Make sure you have plenty of money with you as lots of bargains to be found. Plenty of places to eat and drink too, Jamies Italian, All Bar One, Coast to Coast American Grill and many more. Lots of places to sit and watch the world go by in nice location near the sea. Spinnaker Tower to go to and see the view across Portsmouth (fee payable). Good place to spend a few hours suitable for all the family.
  • We came across the shopping centre by following the Millennium Promenade walk. At the shopping centre there is plenty of restaurants, cafes, shops, and other activities. Many of the shops are outlets, so you have a good chance of finding a good deal. The Spinnaker Tower is also right next to the centre so you can get a good view out to sea, either by going up the tower or looking out from the bottom. Despite there being lots here, it is easy to find your way around, and the paths are in a layout which is easy to find a way around. If you are looking for a place to visit to spend some money and look for a great deal, this is worth a visit.
