What a con! ..won't be going back.In large print gave postcode which we entered and it sent us into bus lane and when I looked at websites in small print it gives you post code to avoid bus lane! ...So Clarke's village for us next time better shops without the scams..

Hi Catherine H,
Thank you for your review and comments. In relation to the fine you have received by driving down a bus lane near our car park, we are sorry that you have received this fine but unfortunately this is out of our control and falls under the jurisdiction of Swindon Borough Council, we are aware that some of our guests do unfortunately make this mistake and we are in contact with the council and Highways Control to try to make the signage better and ensure our guests don't make this mistake in the future.
Kind regards, SDO.

We had a long drive and stopped off here to stretch our legs, grab a bite to eat and enjoy a bit of retail therapy. We were not disappointed. Easy parking and a lovely, clean and airy shopping area with plenty of choice. The car park was busy but it was not at all crowded inside which was lovely. We all left with a few good bargains. Well worth a visit.

As an ‘outlet’ village, the shops do have plenty of offers and sale items that are worth searching through. It also means that the stock seems to change quicker than other mainstream shops of the same chains.

Often go here for a look around. Play area for kids is good when it’s all working.

Shops are great although some change so check if you want a particular one.
