Regent Arcade

Ease The Pressure Of Christmas Shopping crack

We know how stressful Christmas Shopping can be and so during the four Sundays in December when you park in the Regent Arcade Car Park* you can stay for twice as long, for half the price.

Shoppers need look no further than the Regent Arcade for all of their Christmas present ideas and party outfits with over 60 stores to choose from. There’s a great choice between famous high street brands and independent retailers, offering confectionery and health food, jewellery, clothing, electrical goods, accessories and giftware. You could even extend your visit and stop for a bit to eat and a coffee because when you pay for one hour you can stay for two, pay for two and stay for four or why not do all your shopping in one day by paying for three hours and staying for 6 hours.
