I don’t understand why you have to queue to get into the place if you have to queue to get into individual shops anyway. Some shops completely over the top like Clarks basically enforcing you to use the hand sanitizer on the way in when you’ve already done it and washed your hands anyway. This shouldn’t be enforced it should be up to you. People might be allergic to it or whatever but the woman on the door was over the top! Think the power has gone to her head!

We got to the shopping centre just as it opened and we spent 3 hours browsing around the shops. I got a pair of boots from Next, some shoes for the baby from Clarke's, dresses from M & S, and a beautiful bracelet from the jewellers. There are so many shops (high street like Claires Accessories and designer like Ted Baker) with great bargains with upto date styles. In addition to the shops there is also a great food court with something to suit all appetites as well as a children's play area. I would recommend that you drive, because there is so much more to Bridgend than the shopping centre. For example there are great beaches nearby (Porthcawl, Ogmore by Sea, Kenfig pools),. Parks (Bryngarw and Margam), castles (Coity castle), golf courses (St Mary Hill, Porthcawl and one in Coychurch). In addition to this there are a number of retail parks dotted around Bridgend. For example near Coychurch you will find Starbucks, B & Q, The Range and a bed shop, at Waterton you will find Greg's, Costa Coffee, Dun Elm and Argos. Near the Tesco's there is SCS, B & M, Homebase, Lidls, Home Bargains, Pets at Home and Halfords. In each of the shops we visited we managed to find some great bargains including bedding from the Range, curtains from Dun Elm, towels from Homebase and toys from Argos for Christmas. On top of all the retail parks there is also a town centre with easy parking (by Wilko's or the multistorey car park) and well known shops such as Asdas, Aldi's, Farm Foods, Dorothy Perkins, New Look, Iceland, H Samuels, Monsoon, Boots, Pep & Co and so on. Throughout the town there are plenty of places to eat and drink and there is a lovely little market. I would recommend a visit to Bridgend because there is so much to do and see.

There are some good shops, but the designer "outlets" are very poor. They sell clothes and footwear that may have been 'designer' 20-30 years ago but not today. Quality was very poor and some were selling confectionery that is cheaper at your local supermarket. You can get up-to-date designs that are cheaper than these outlets from the same local store or online. On the plus side there are one or two shops there worth visiting, but the majority were very disappointing.

Visited on the way back from mid Wales and nothing much has changed since last time apart from the COVID secure messages which were all sensibly done. Car park capacity has been limited to restrict visitor numbers too. The shop selection is good but the design of the whole place is nothing like the ones they run in Europe or afar. Architecturally then having visited McArthur Glen in Vancouver then Bridgend is not on a par. The pictures in the toilets show what can be done showing off their other locations.

Loads of shops here with great prices. Loads of good deals. There's a coffee shop with a kids play area and plenty of restaurants. There is also a cinema here. You could literally spend the whole day here if you wanted to. We always visit the Lindt shop and get a bag of chocolates to take home. Great shopping centre.
