Castle Quay Shopping Centre Banbury
I took my daughter to her aunties in Adderbury this morning and being only a couple of miles from Banbury decided to nip in and do a bit of shopping whilst I was there.
Despite only being about 15 miles from Banbury, I seldom go there, and when I do, it is usually just to the out of town stores.
Being a Sunday, with less traffic on the road (and less people in the shops) I decided to brave it and have a drive in to the center.
First nice surprise was a nice easy to use car park, Castle Quay Parking North, next was a pleasant short distance walk to the main entrance of the Castle Quay Shopping Centre and the final nice surprise was the quality of the place and the number of nice shops it has.
I’ve never been much of a shopper and tend to just stick to familiar places where I feel comfortable, but the beauty of Castle Quay is it has all the nice familiar places like; M&S, Debenhams, Next, GAP, Boots, Bhs, Waterstone’s, Woolworths etc. It also has a nice range of Jewellery shops, shoe shops, sports shops, games shops, book shops, gifts shops, food outlets and much more.
All the staff seem pleasant, the centre is nice, clean and spacious and generaly has a nice atmosphere. Looks like I have found somewhere to do my Christmas shopping this year.
