I've not been to HG for a few years.

Is it worth a trip round the M25?
I'm after a trip to Tresspass (outdoor /waterproof.)
Maybe M&S Outlet
TKMaxx for a wander.

Is it worth a nosey or has it gone downhill like alot of shopping centres (closed shops/empty shops)

i like it (went today) it has:
Gap outlet, great for kids/men okay for women nothing too special
calvin klein underwear good for bargains but you have to hunt them out
tk maxx - like any other though very big
my fav french connection/great plains outlet. lots of bargains at the back and reductions on lots of stock
tons of cook ware/tea pot type shops
two next outlets (home and clothing)
m and s outlet - not much excitement there
hmv (still open)
lots of other shops i can't remember!
massive indoor play area if you have kids

don't think there are any closed shops there - couple of nice eating places and ob lots of fast food outlets at the front

you can always go down the road to st albans or welwyn too if you have more time to kill

It's ok, not brilliant...the tk maxx is pretty good, M&S is mainly frump (with exceptions), Trespass has been joined by Mountain Warehouse and another outdoor shop so good on that score. There's a Gap outlet which seems to sell poor quality stuff at a lower price (rather than reduced price last-season Gap, as you'd expect. Although I've had some nice baby things from there) and a French Connection outlet. There used to be a Laura Ashley furniture outlet but it closed...Ghost is very good there if you need formal wear.

If you are going to go, I'd def recommend going early, I had to go a couple of weeks ago on a Saturday afternoon and it was manic.

I think the Galleria is a depressing white elephant. It's always full of bored looking people wandering around, killing time.

The only semi decent store is the Waterstone's (iirc).
