  • You may know this place, you may not, but all the same, nice building, but at the same time, its a miserale place, lack of places, empty places, a few nice places to shop if your lucky, nice food...  more »
  • The Tesco Metro store was useful but Capitol is not much of a shopping centre, there was a lot of empty units; it seemed it was more useful as a car park for some people.  more »

  • I worked here in retail for a while. It is a nice shopping centre. Has all you need for a shopping day. Even all the restaurants. Shake shack is always a good option. And for a nice weekend the mini golf is a good choice
  • The best bridal shop I have ever visited is in this shopping centre Celtic Brides. Their shop is absolutely gorgeous. Finding my dress at Celtic Brides was the loveliest experience I could ever have wished for. I only knew Capitol existed because of them. Since I've bought my dress there, I've bought in Phase Eight and the furniture shop
