  • In 2 of the city, is the realm of shopping that offers a wide range of shops but also great choice to eat (not just fast food) plus the inevitable multi room. With ample parking surcharge.

  • Great selection of shops. A pretty generic layout to be honest with other towns shopping centres but a good shopping experience with lots of space to move about in. Step outside to the fantastic riverside offering cafes and bars to suit most tastes.
  • Good location with a lot of different options for shopping and food. There's a little more here than your standard mall and if I'm passing through Reading I'll normally drop in here on my way to my friends. The outdoor area for restaurants is always good during the summer with plenty of sun and lots of space to sit outside so you can normally find somewhere with availability for an al fresco meal.
  • A great place to start your shopping visit to Reading. I usually use their large multi-storey carpark which has plenty of spaces even on a Christmas Saturday and the lifts always seem to work fine. The shopping experience is bright & airy with a good range of up to date stores and little cafes. There are plenty of access routes into the old town and the central area around the river has lots of restaurants and a good cinema. Basically, you can easily spend a day here and have a pretty good time.
  • It's a great mall to roam around, and there is an abundance of stores here. The food joints here are also more interesting than most. All in all, a perfect place to kill some time!
  • Could do with more lifts and bigger lifts for pushchairsnd, and better floor plan so you can plan your shop and not go up and down in the lift 10 times. Otherwise, clean with an ok array of ordinary chain shops. Nothing here to thrill but if all you want is the usual shopping centre experience this is fine.
