“Freeport Braintree”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

This is the first time I have been back for years, and nothing has really changed, overcrowded and over rated. Difficult to find what you want, no real bargains. Adjacent to the site are places to get drinks and meals, and this is an improvement.

“not worth it- poor”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

nearly always crazy busy for parking , small selection of shops you would find in most average towns and no special outlet center prices that i see

feels like its on its last legs - no real reason to make a trip here as theres nothing to attract shoppers plus the agro of a packed car park

“Not what it used to be”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

I pop here 2 or 3 times a year and have done so for many years. It's getting a little tire there now as not as many varied shops as before, but it's still worth a trip. It's basically a poor mans Bicester. Lots of different places to eat which makes up for that fact

“Waste of fuel getting here”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

People seem to be easily pleased by Freeport Braintree but quite honestly the best parts are the car park and leaving it. Springfield Shopping is far better.
