Parent & baby rooms

When a nappy needs changing, mummy needs a rest, or a toddler needs taming, our award-winning parent and baby rooms are on hand to give you a calming and peaceful environment.

Our dedicated parent and baby rooms are both located on the upper mall with one near New Look and the other in the food court at Eat Central. We also have changing rooms located at the toilet facilities near Asda on the lower mall.

Don’t forget we also have private areas for feeding at both of our parent and baby rooms should you need to stop off and take care of your little one.
