Not worth a visit. Seen a decline in quality of stores in complex but stores out in the street have improved

I loved wandering through these markets with the diverse range of shops. From jewellery to candles to second hand books and cafes. A great way to spend a few hours.

Walking through here, you could be forgiven for thinking it is a food court with bolt on retailers. However the retailers are unique, genuine people selling some Really high quality wears at reasonable prices. Great food options as well - highly recommend kiss kafe!

Was very disappointed. Not a lot to see really. Whilst surroundings were nice there was a lot of rubbish. Was expecting a half day of mooching instead had seen it all in 30 minutes.

Found this place by accident. The building itself is amazing.... but then you head inside and its just as wonderful. Lots of different shops and cafes, well worth a visit or two.

These markets are so beautiful. Need some more cheaper shops with gift ideas. And cheaper eateries. The art work around is amazing.

I've been coming here since I was a kid on school holidays & while it's not the same bustling, exciting adventure I remember from the 80's, it's still a great day out. The old fashioned lolly shop is definitely worth a visit.
