Have been visiting Gunwharf since it opened, visiting 2-3 times a year. The shops, bars and restaurants don't disappoint and the Ralph Lauren Store prices alone are worth the hours drive down the A3 ! However, if you drive anything bigger than a Nissan Micra, don't go near the main underground car park. We visited this weekend and drove down... More

A little disappointed with our visit to Gun Wharf Quays... A good selection of shops but to be honest I thought they were a little overrated and not that much cheaper... To be honest I've got a better selection on my doorstop and won't be making an effort to drive to Portsmouth again - okay if you include a visit... More

Variety of shops and quality Outlets combined with masses of eateries makes this a very busy place especially at weekends and Bank Holidays. Shopping, eating, a cinema and evening clubbing/drinking venues until late. In summer its location at the entrance to Portsmouth harbour guarantees good views and lots of outside eating places. The Spinnaker Tower gives the area a great... More

As affiiciados of these places, we liked Gunwharf Quays. The range of outlets was to our liking, even though some of the prices were higher than what we had seen elsewhere. The water frontage added to the experience. We will return during the sales.

This lovely ex navel barracks has now been turned into a up-market, trendy shopping (days) and eating (nights) area. It has "The Pull" and is the destination for choice for thousands of people. The original shops have nearly all gone as once the area became a success the rents all went up resulting in Top Brand names moving in. For... More

Great for shopping for designers. Great for coffee shops and restaurants too. Can even get to the spinnaker tower from the quays. Great for watching ships of all sizes coming and going.

Visited Gunwharf Quays on a wet and cold day which affected how long we stayed. There are plenty of shops and all the usual eating outlets, many with good views across the harbour. It is definitely a place to visit in the summer!! The whole area needs to be covered in order to attract more visitors in the winter.

When Gunwharf first opened it was pretty good, manufacturer outlet shops mainly, some bargains to be had, there are still a few of these shops but being taken over by normal expensive retail. Plenty of restaurants, in fact dozens... familiar names and some independent which are very good, but bit pricey, you pay for surroundings I guess. Casino, good, Bowling,... More
