Was surprised at the size of this shopping centre. There are plenty of places to eat and a large number of shops. There is also a market area. Free parking is definitely a bonus.

Washington galleries is a very popular shopping centre however there is a lack of shops, there is not enough to satisfy everyone. We need more clothes shops as well as a Lego shop or something for all ages to go inside and browse.

Good place to shop, however, you never know where the shops are as none of the signage is up to date! Not a good place when children are off school but otherwise it’s just a typical shopping centre

This place is efficient for shopping and food however can get really overcrowded real fast. People stop in your way which is quite a bother and in the evening when heading to bus stop late the staff stare at you.
