The Galleries Shopping centre has very little to offer shoppers nowadays. It is practically empty. Most of the shops have moved to the grand arcade making the Galleries a ghost town. Not sure what the future holds for this place.

The bus station is being renovated so most buses terminate near wall gate railway station so in that case you'll walk downhill towards the town centre.
