From my point of view this place is o.k. if you like shopping because it's got shops ,its modern bright and well planned out but I do not like shopping and I do not know any man that does and I know quite a few. There didn't appear to be a pub near by where he could get a drink or sit and just wait for his better half.so all in all this is a place for shoppers, and nothing for those who just get dragged there. I will get criticised for this but it's my view and guess the view of quite a few men.

It's a shame because I used to enjoy Vangarde but being fined £80 for using their car park for less than five minutes because of their parking company manipulating information is ridiculous. There are plenty of other places nearby at Monks Cross and Clifton Moor that I think I'll stick to.

Overstayed by 38 mins, £45 fine. Please be aware that the car park is monitored electronically. Find it strange that Marks and Spencer, John Lewis and Next feel that four hours is sufficient time to shop in their stores.

Went for a pre-Mother’s day shopping trip and had a great day, wandering all of the shops at leisure, spending a fortune and taking time for lunch and coffee. A great day was ruined by a £45 parking fine (£80 if you don’t pay up in 14 days) for overstaying the 4 hour parking limit!
Whilst the fine may have been legitimate, it smacks of profiteering - how can you experience all that a shopping park has to offer in 4 hours?
I’d suggest that anyone considering a visit carefully time the length of their stay or limit themselves to a speed-shopping experience rather than a leisurely day out. Consider whether that time in the changing room or a quick coffee is worth the cost of parking.
I will not visit again and would not recommend this centre to anyone wanting anything other than a quick browse.
