Variety of goods there is good but price looked not so heavily discounted. Location is not so far from the center but I took a uber there to save time. Store staff are nice and service minded enough so we could have a good time there.

Large store with lots of Iittala and Arabia. Clear layout and easy to find. We went during the sale before the renovation, so the store was very crowded and a lot of items out of stock. This was fine though, as all items were -50%. Kind staff despite the rush and crowds of people. We broke some plates on the... More

I had so much expectation before I came here but I have to say I am a bit disappointed. The so called outlet is very small scale. The iittala shop sells most stuff like the one in town and some factory seconds. Even the factory seconds are not that cheap. And not much stuff there to be honest. There are... More

This review is about the entire Arabia center and complex that includes not just the shopping center, cafes, restaurants but also the outdoor residential areas with modern, interesting sculptures spread all around, and the relaxing waterfront with a walking path. The entire place is a wonderful getaway from the tourists in central Helsinki. It is a 20 min tram ride... More

At Arabia factory shop you can find Finnish design on tablewear and kitchen equipment. Visiting the museum you find the whole variety of products made in this factory. Factory itself was (sadly tough) closed a couple of months ago. This shop is very popular among tourists.

Nice factory shop in an arcade that has a good range of other Finnish homewards stuff. There's some seriously lovely stuff here but don't come expecting too many as most of it is very pricey. You've also got the problem of getting such weighty goods home. You might do as we did and treat it as a fun outing to... More

The factory shop is not too huge and can not compare with the factory outlets in other countries. But, you can buy lots of local products here and it's good.

Arabia factory store is tram ride away from the city centre. It may have interesting stuff if you are into porcelain and glass. It has some factory seconds at discounted prices but the rest of the stuff is the same you can find in the city centre store. Arabia does not, in fact, manufacture anything in Finland anymore. It comes... More

This rating is for the Street Festival that happens once a year in May (I found out about this from a food tour that I took and then followed up for more info from the 'visit Helsinki' website). This is a lively local event, with many community groups offering very reasonably priced street food (the cinnamon buns from a school... More

We came for the plates and glasses and stayed for the tableware, trays etc. Expect to spend some time if you are interested in Scandinavian design. There are a few shops which invite to brows and explore all sorts of objects. The cafe isn't bad. Had some coffee and rememberable cake there.
