  • As we live local we often pop down for a bit of shopping and a bite to eat, now with much improved food hall it is a lot better, albeit a lot of fast food outlets, Carluccio's is by far the best, good...  more »

  • Great place for shopping. Mostly indoor which means it's still easy in the rain. There is a smaller outdoor section on certain days including the weekend which is a mix of local food and drink producers. Continuing indoors, you have a dedicates food gallery, plus a selection of restaurant's and coffee shops which are spread through the facility. A small toddlers train whisks children around plus they have a centrally locates play area with a good array of equipment. Very enjoyable place to go.
  • Located just outside the town centre of Swindon. the designer outlet has got plenty of parking but it's not free. There are so many different shops in the complex selling everything from chocolate and Ice-cream to kitchen Ware and candles but mostly it's a clothing outlet. You can get some great bargains as the prices are lower than the high street but some of the shops, NEXT especially, are a mess. Clothes on rails in no particular order, it's just a real ball ache trying to find anything. Dotted around the complex are food and coffee outlets and it has also has a food Hall. It's somewhere where you can spend a couple of hours, wander around, have something to eat and get some decent bargains.
  • Love the place. I visit at least 4 times a year when in town. Always a great time. Great shops. Good food choices. Great parking. All undercover.
  • Excellent mall with lots of good restaurants. Good toilet facilities. Travelled 75 miles from North West London. Well worth the effort.
  • Great selection of stores, lots of parking that's not too far to walk, and a great play area in the centre for kids. Was very busy, but we went on a Sunday mid-day so was to be expected. Some deals to be had, but I think the real draw here is the selection of shops all under one roof. It is arranged around a courtyard so its easy to navigate around and not miss anything. I did not eat but the food selections looked pretty good and good variety. There was a small market set up outside the entrance also, but I imagine that happens only on weekends, maybe only Sundays.
