16.How much time did you spend in West Quay on your last visit? 15 mins
17.What do you most like about West Quay? Nandos!
18.What do you most dislike about West Quay? god, where to start... I can not stand the crowd of barely human life-forms that stand by the entrance smoking, you can barely see through the shadowy murk. I hate walking through the smoke cloud, I hate having to push through to get to the entrance/exit because they stand there moronically being confused you might want to to get to the door, I hate walking on the carpet of fag butts. I hate the way the ground floor slopes, it hurts my knees. I dislike the food court intensely, It is noisy and claustrophobic. The toilets/baby change being on the top floor in a far distant corner is bloody irritating. I hate the general aimlessness of the whole centre, people stand lost and confused like they have given up on life as there is no flow to the place. I dislike the trendy shop that looks like a restaurant (Hollister?) but I suspect that one is due to me being old and grumpy. I used to hate the scrum for the lifts until I realised I could use the lift in Gap, so now I marvel that no one else has cottoned onto also doing so. Mostly I dislike the general air of hopelessness West Quay fills me with. <breathes>
19.would you like to see more of the following: Womenswear, Menswear, Childrens clothing, footwear, budget fashion, designer fashion, plus size fashion, vintage fashion, sportswear, ethical, environmental, evening wear? not really
20. Are there any shops/styles which you would like to see in West Quay which aren't currently there?? I just would really like Habitat and Waitrose to come back please

Uniqlo. Decent womenswear shops as suggested by others - good quality at reasonable price.
