“Been dying a slow death since it opened.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

I remember when this place opened and it hasn't got any better in years since. The shops are closing down and there are empty stores. I only really go there for the Nike store or Asda which can both be hit and miss.

Ok for a hour or two but no more than that

“I'd Rather Go To Ukraine Than Here”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

I cannot believe this is listed as an attraction. Its not even good enough to attract flies. Even if the flies were desperate for some hideous trainers, that the manufacturer cant sell. It's Rubbish. I didn't go in the Asda though.

“A village?!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

We decided to call in hoping to fill a cloudy morning; hoping for somewhere to have lunch and the children to have a play in a park. The boys were really excited to see a huge pirate ship to climb on until we realised it would cost £9.95 for children and £4.95 for adults to enter!! So we didn't go into that area.

There weren't any restaurants, just Costa Coffee and a pasty shop. Of course there is the Asda cafe but we chose to wait and go elsewhere for lunch.

The shopping is no where near other outlets. There was a Poundland! We didn't enter but wondered if things would still be £1! There was a Gap, Cadburys shop, M&S Outlet, 2 outdoor shops, a gift shop and some home shops. Probably ok if you don't have young children in tow.

Parking is free, that's something!

“OK for a rainy day”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014

This outlet seems to be getting run down with empty shops and the offers are not of a high quality for the price on offer

“Pretty and homely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014

I enjoyed a very relaxed shop and as pointed out by other people checked out the parking that is put in place by ASDA and not Atlantic village, because I read the signs PROPERLY I knew it has a 2 hour limit and long stay is available, anyway enjoyable afternoon
