We visited for a quick look before heading to the Ed Sheeran concert. A whole lot of empty units. The best shop we went in was Creative Crafts.

Not many shops, most shops were empty/for rent. Would not recommend to anybody, go too the big shopping centre round the corner!

This one is a shadow of its former self and needs re-inventing. The upper deck is now all gym club, gone are the little shops and not much downstairs now.
