Great mall with a good mix of stores including a number of eateries. It’s great the way this centre links with others such as Copley via overhead walkways. Seems to be very popular with both tourists and locals

Well I went when it was raining and it was fine. We in fact enjoyed the indoor attraction as there were audio guides and we could still see all the sites.
