Very clean ,very basic shopping centre. Handy if your on your way to train or bus station. Not really any specialist shops just everyday shops. I don't really come away to shop but like to have a quick look round to see if there is anything different but here there wasn't. Like any other shopping centre nothing interesting.

this is big shopping centre that has different clothes stores, cafes, and restaurants. one of its doors lead to the high street where other shops are available, cafes and restaurants.

nothing more to say really... oh yeas and there is like buses station in front of it, so you can visit it and leave easily with big network of buses.

There really is a shop for everyone in this classic 60's shopping centre and some good places to eat and have a coffee. For traditional sit down English fare, try upstairs next to Wilkinsons but don't be late as this is the best value and fills up quickly !
For Eastern delights that it has to be 'The Real China' with an all you can eat buffet for less than a fiver !

Not the best shopping centre in the world. Needs to be completely raised and rebuilt. Has most of the shops you need but completely lacks charm.
