Family Friendly Shopping

Looking for the best shopping experience filled with stress-free, relaxation and supplying you with everything you need?

Look no further...

Here at The Mall, we’re BIG on family friendly shopping and we care for all our guests, so here’s a quick guide to some of the things we do to make life easier for your family – and for you...


Busy Bee Soft Play Area - FREE

Take a break and keep yourself busy... busy relaxing of course with our Busy Bee play area whilst your little ones buzz around with amusement. This is located in Victoria Court just outside The Works.

Featuring a fantastic, fun soft play area for the kids to enjoy!

So take a breather during your visit and let the kids do what they do best, have fun and play!

The play area is unsupervised, so please stay with your little ones at all times. The play area is suitable for kids under 6 years old.


Baby Fresh – Changing Facilities and Feeding Room

It's no fun for little ones (or you) when they are uncomfortable.

Whether a nappy needs changing or some peace and quiet to feed baby is required. Check out our refurbished parent and baby facilities, complete with fun and colourful designs on the walls, four baby changing stations, a private feeding area with sliding door and comfortable chairs plus a wall of games for toddlers, and a larger toilet with room for a buggy or pram.

These facilities can be found at County Court, near Subway and even at Core 5 above Costa.


Family First Parking







Don’t let the little ones drive you mad while you’re searching for a space – you’ll find dedicated parent and child parking bays located in both the Market and Central car parks to make coming and going as simple and family friendly as can be.


The Mall Monster

The Mall Monster, our shopping centre mascot, has set up a special kids club. It’s a place where all The Monster’s little friends meet to enjoy face painting, arts and crafts, storytelling, competitions and all sorts of special events throughout the year – designed to give parents some time to treasure, while their little treasures are entertained. They’ll make lots of new friends!
