This venue has all that you NEED from the well known brands for food, clothes, medicine, cards, sweets, stationery etc etc. Parking is good, eateries are plentiful and varied. Its a "pop into" place and get what you want.

Stopped off for a quick snack while visiting the area. Food ok and the restaurant clean but tired. However the staff were happy and helpful. Thanks to Mary who chatted about how the place had changed over the years.

We visited the Happy Valley a year ago and the service and cleanliness is as good as ever. The shops were bright and the staff polite and appeared interested. Parking was plentiful and with the clearly marked bays made the visit pleasurable.

Plenty of shops all under one roof and on one level too. Parking is sometimes tricky but if you wait long enough you can find somewhere to park. There is also a food court for a quick bite to eat or a cuppa.
