I visited Crossways Shopping Centre and it is a disgrace. Full of failed businesses there is only a couple shops out of over 30 possible locations. I parked in the nearby car... read more

Never ceases to amaze me how people are so determined to moan, groan and write places off without realising that there are actually some benefits if only they'd look a bit harder! For the sake of an extra 5 minutes to walk in to Paignton centre, parking is cheap 'n' cheerful. Obviously (and like any other paid car park), it's... More

I visited Crossways Shopping Centre and it is a disgrace. Full of failed businesses there is only a couple shops out of over 30 possible locations. I parked in the nearby car park and it was dirty, expensive and suffering from a lack of investment. The owners really need to do something to improve this shopping centre. The shops outside...

Back in 2000 this was a lovely shopping centre full of nice and quirky shops, but over the past 10 years the place is almost completely empty, shopkeepers only come for a few months then realise nobody uses this so called shopping centre. It has been sold several times but new owners do nothing to reburbish. Ohh word of warning... More

Visited Paignton in January 2017. Went round the shops, then came upon the so-called Crossways Shopping Centre. The few shops that are still open in the centre, look clean and tidy. However, most of the units are closed and look like they have been abandoned. The overall impression given is that the centre looks like it has come to the... More

There are not very many shops left here anymore and does not get alot of visitors anymore. As shops close down, nothing new seems to take its place.

Needs Shops in the centre as a lot off them have gone and only a couple remain so it is a waste even going in it

Visited centre to visit shops, (dissapointing mostly closed and empty shops). Paid for 2 hrs parking and recieved parking ticket for parking for just over one hour. Best avoided.

Bought two hours. You can clearly see the ticket on my 'out' photo on the dashboard. Fined £100 for not having a ticket!! Feel sick to the stomach as I know I paid £1:60 and displayed it as I had to raid my sons 20p collection as was going to the emergency dentist. Having children-I regularly clean out the car... More

What a nightmare! Around 5 days after visiting we received a parking fine! Utterly disgusted and sick to the stomach with worry that we'd thrown the ticket. Luckily we found it, emailed everything over and believed that would be that, nope, today a reminder received! We are a family of a budget and to receive the fine in the first... More

This small walk through shopping centre originally included quite a popular Co-operative Supermarket which was by far the largest business in Crossways. When this company made it's decision to close their store the footfall began to decline with the result that most of the retail units are now empty. Redevelopment of the whole centre must now represent the only viable... More
