Quite a few high street chain stores, but lots of empty units too unfortunately. I enjoy visiting and the car parks are pretty good.

Large modern shopping centre right in the Town by the canal. Adjacent multi storey parking at reasonable prices. Lots of big High Street name shops. Plenty of food and drink outlets. The Museum is also worth a visit.
