This is fantastic place to go if it is raining as it is an indoor shopping centre. There is something for everyone as there is a wide variety of shops. The food court is great, as it offers a few different cuisines.

As a 1st time visitor to NI, it quickly becomes apparent that shopping is a very different experience here. We felt that Ballymena overall is 'on the up', especially compared with many mainland UK towns which are definitely not! Some nice, niche and upmarket brands...More

Not a bad sized shopping centre. Has a few nice shops but nothing out of the ordinary to get excited about. Staff were nice in the shops though. The Irish are so polite.

This shopping centre has all of it's unit's let out. There's nothing worse than looking at boarded up units, it's depressing. This place is always buzzing with people. Marks and Spencers bring in a lot of customers, definitely having the food hall is a bonus....More

One of the few shopping centres in Northern Ireland that has almost all of its units let and still attracting crowds. This is a well managed mall with an excellent balance of retail outlets and eateries.

This shopping centre hasn't been as busy since Easons and HMV did leave but with the return of Starbucks, you get a busy atmosphere around that. This shopping centre is easily located in the town and has good parking. The toilets in the shopping centre...More
