I rather suspect that this place is now some way beyond its best, with quite a few empty units and very few interesting shops. Not the best advertisement for Poole for people arriving in the adjacent bus station.

This store is amazing! The two ladies were very helpful and ensured we were assisted all throughout our purchases! We will definitely be back to a Yankee store soon!

As an occasional visiter the changes are obvious. There are empty units around the centre but also some new developments. Major players like M&S, Beales, Boots, Wilkinsons and Primark still dominate with a few other handy smaller retailers. There are a few eateries around so...More

Popped in enroute to see some friends. It's a nice place but it's a bit dated in my opinion. However there are a few nice shops in the centre and we enjoyed our visit and would return when next in the area.

A small shopping centre but it was clean and a pleasant place to browse you have to go upstairs to the toilets but it is right by the bus station
