A day out in Poole to do some Chirstmas shopping, a good variety of shops and some independent outlets that sell "different" things, Plenty of food outlets at fair prices. Lovely Christmas decorations.

It has been open for a few year and is not wearing well. As with so may of these places it has become a place for the young to congregate, not helped by the bus terminus alongside. KFC is the fast food place eat, but there are also a couple of self-service eateries. There is also a Chinese buffet, but once you have been there a couple of times you never need to go back again. Shops are not wonderful. Beales (the local department store) and M&S predominate, then there is Boots and a number of smaller establishments.

I live not far from here so use it quite a lot,some nice shops plenty of known names,some nice places to eat or have coffee feel very safe in centre because lots of security around they soon get rid of rowdy youths so makes it very pleasant

There is nothing different to The Dolphin Centre as there is to every town centre around the country. It does seem quite dated now so will hopefully have some investment in the next few years.

It was clean and tidy which was more than could be said for the rest of Poole's shopping area.

Ok centre with all usual outlet stores. If its raining and want to while away a couple of hours ( or let the wife spend some money) good place to go.
Downside is that it has taken all the shops off the high street which looks desolated and run down
