Harlow in General Reviews
Newest Review: ... Claires, H Samuel, Argos, Primark, Poundland and more. In other words, this centre is full of the typical stores you would expect to see in any shopping mall. The decor seems a little dated now, but the mall is spacious enough and caters for lots of different needs, so it doesn't matter all too much. The Water Gardens branches off of the mall area, and is in the outdoors part of the Town Centre. The shops along here are situated around, as the name suggests, water gardens-comprising of water features, which you will often find quite a lot of ducks swimming around in. Here, you will find a few of Harlow's restaurants, including Nandos, a C... more

**This review is also on Ciao, under my username "MonsoonBaby88"** I moved to Harlow with my fiance in August 2010. Before this, I had only occasionally popped up with him to visit his parents who have lived here for more than 22 years. The first time I visited Harlow, if I am being honest, my expectations were not very high. I had heard people talk about how horrible Harlow is, and this left me feeling a bit negative about visiting. However, I do not understand the criticism, Harlow is actually a pretty nice place! Pros: The first thing I noticed about Harlow was the amount of greenery everywhere. Unlike my last residency in Romford, ... Read the complete review

HARLOW ESSEX Well i moved to harlow approximately three years ago, having said i would never live here, but must say that now im here think its a great place to live. Loads of shops ********** The Waterglade. Its a lovely place to go and sit, when on your lunch breaks or just for a rest from shopping around the town. There are some man made ponds, with the added bonus of fish inside to look at, and benches to sit on in the hot sunny days, there are little water features too. The ponds, facing onto the Civic Centre, the Local Council Offices, a modern building. Next to : A Nandos, a ... Read the complete review

I live in Harlow town and have done all my life. And my goodness has it come under a lot of criticism recently in particular. But quite frankly I don't think all of this is warranted. There are a number of positives about the town. For a start, although the Harvey Centre has deteriorated with the loss of shops such as Next and River Island, we have a new area called the Water Gardens that is a new fantastic place to shop. This is an outdoor area, slightly further down from the main shopping centre. This area includes various shops (River Island, Jane Norman, Next, Asda, Matalan, Clarks, Sports Soccer, Madhouse, Clarks, The Entertainer, Top Shop, Carphone ... Read the complete review

I was born and grew up in Harlow, I lived there for 25 years and by the time I could afford my own place I was pretty much desperate to leave. There's little more to say about the town apart from the fact its there, its functional, it does what it says on the tin. I wouldnt choose to live there again and unless the worst ever happened wouldnt move back. The town has changed a fair bit in the 5 years since I moved away, I visited briefly last year and was surprised by the amount of building work going on with new homes springing up everywhere. The town was badly planned in my opinion, ok each section of the town has it's own amenities such as shops, medical ... Read the complete review

I have not visited Harlow for a while and this is because on previous visits I have been so put off! Although there is a wide variety of shops to choose from and so ideally should be a fantastic shopping centre, i have sadly been put off by the peolple of Harlow. Perhaps I am old fashioned but i try to treat others with courtesy and respect and this is something I am yet to receive from others when I have shopped here. Many people here seem rude and sometimes abusive, which is not pleasant when you have small children with you. Shop staff are on the whole disheartened, dissillusioned and consequently the most unhelpful I have come across. When I ... Read the complete review
