South East markets – Southampton, Poole, Basingstoke in focus

Bargate Quarter

A failed shopping centre is being knocked down to make way for a new scheme that will celebrate the city’s history.

The 24 retail units and five retail ‘pavilions’ will be designed to appeal to “a discerning crowd searching for something special”.

But will it prove too high end for Southampton?
