Botany Bay (England)
Advantages: plenty of shops to look round
Disadvantages: having to pay to look around
The saying goes "bring all the family down to botany bay". no thanks i'd rather not.
Botany bay is based alongside the m61 in chorley, its a huge old building with about 4 levels high. Its full of shops ranging from antiques to crafts, the shops are ok, nothing special but you do have to pay to get in just to look round. thats the big downside for me, why should you pay to look round shops?
A mixture of giftware, ethnic products and collectables from present day through to yesteryear lead through to the kitchen area, where we have from pots and pans, cookware to glassware and kitchen accessories etc.
Stylish furniture from around the world sumptuous furnishings, mirrors, lighting, and pictures through to fitted kitchens, there's so much potential.
A large selection of Ladies & Mens fashion-wear including Roman Originals, Klass and More Classics. A selection of crafts, handcrafted gifts and accessories are complemented by an extensive range of toys and baby products. This floor also houses the textile department to include bedding, linens, curtains and soft furnishing to suit all styles and tastes.
The seasonal floor plays host to the famous Christmas shop which opens August bank holiday and runs straight through till Christmas. The 4th floor plays host to Shambles Tea Room and Smethurst's Restaurant, ideal to relax with a snack or a full 3 course meal.
also if you want to leave the kids for something to do there is puddletown pirates which again costs per child, so basically if your a family of 4 and you want to leave the kids at puddletown pirates, your looking at about 12 quid before you have even started to think about looking around or eating.
This place isnt my cup of tea as i dont fancy paying just to look round shops. It may well be up your street so dont let me put you off from trying it out.
Summary: not my cup of tea
