Expected Weekly Visitor Numbers

We recommend that you use our time table to plan your visit for quieter periods. The quietest times to visit are from 4pm Monday - Friday.

This is expected to be a calm shopping day. There might be waiting lines at some of our popular brands.

The centre is moderately busy and it is expected that there are queues at some of our brands.

Today we expect a large number of guests wanting to visit us. Please allow enough time for your visit, as it may come to longer waiting times due to queues. The Centre may have to temporarily prevent access from cars if we reach our capacity.

Our dedicated Traffic Management Team will be here to support entry when it’s safe to.

Bureau Veritas SafeGuard Covid-19 Certification

As part of our mission to make sure you have a safe and enjoyable day out shopping with us, we have now been certified with the Bureau Veritas SafeGuard Covid-19 certification.​

Bureau Veritas is a world leader in testing and inspection certification ​and focuses on guaranteeing consistent good procedure across multiple sites. ​So you can relax, feeling secure in the knowledge that we have taken care ​of all the necessary health and safety measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19

Additional Social Distancing Measures

We’ve been working closely with Chester & Cheshire West Council alongside Cheshire Police to form our social distancing plans.

In order to comply with social distancing guidance, there will be a significant reduction in permitted visitor numbers, in order to support this car park A, B, C and our multi-storey will remain open but with reduced capacities.

Our stores will have designated queuing systems highlighted with yellow footprints and they will be limiting guest numbers within their space. Please expect waiting times to access the stores. We will be working hard to let you in, as soon as safe to do so. We thank you in advance for your understanding.

We’ll share on our website and social channels any temporary access restrictions for guests to help you plan your visit.
