Owner description: We're the new destination for shopping, leisure and adventure right in the heart of England. The Valley is packed with good stuff, in fact there's 125 acres to discover and explore - with all the biggest brands and unique boutiques, right on the River Avon. An eclectic mix of retailers, centred in a relaxed retail village, The Valley is home to designer fashion brands, outdoor specialists and local crafts and produce. The Valley offers a range of great places to eat and drink, from relaxed bistro dining to a comforting roast dinner, and with a wide range of fresh local produce our farm shop is the perfect place to purchase your picnic essentials. The Valley Castle Adventure Playground and our very own narrow gauge railway mean there's something for the whole family to enjoy. With cycle paths, country walks, and over a mile of serene riverbank, our outdoor lifestyle shopping destination is truly unique. Just five minutes drive from Evesham town centre, ideally located on the A46, with free parking seven days a week, why wait to discover something new at The Valley?

The cost to go for the short trip is a complete rip off. You can go on a full size steam train for an all day ticket for the same price. I wouldn’t recommend or take my kids here again!

Went on easter sunday so a lot of the shops were closed. Good walk but if you want the train book in advance. Plenty of places to eat and ha d activities for younger children. Shops that were open were pricey but enjoyed looking around!

I’ve been going to this shopping outlet over the years, since the backend of 2017, you are now allowed to take well behaved dogs into most of the shops. Up until recently you could not take dogs around the garden centre / or into the little cafe which is attached to the haberdashery store.

What I like about this garden centre is the great choice of garden furniture. It maybe expensive, however the quality, designs and the selection is excellent. It’s worth a visit. The choice of shops include pavers shoes, leading labels, cotton traders, cook shop, the works, haberdashery, posh dog shop & more.

The shopping here i feel is only for people with money to burn! Very expensive in most the shops here.
But it does have a really lovely walk behind it with a little play and picnic area! Great for a sunny day
