I, personally, haven't been here but I have been past it and with a lot of the family residing out in the Tamworth direction, I know a few people that have!
The complex contains most of the main shops the UK could have in any other shopping complex i.e - Currys, Boots, Next, River Island etc. I have drove past a few times and seen that the complex is quite big and stretches around all angles and I seen less than half of what there is to offer.
What to buy: Anything that you want!
What to pay: Average price for the UK shops - all depends on what you want to buy.

Favorite thing: Tamworth Castle - a Norman shell-keep castle with intact apartments. Period rooms dating from 12th to 19th centuries and a ghost!
We also have some lovely countryside and canal walks surrounding Tamworth - Hopwas Woods and Middleton Hall can both be reached by lovely walks along the canal. There are some quaint villages surrounding Tamworth - Appleby, Wigginton, Hopwas, Shuttington and Orton on the Hill - find a nice village pub and enjoy a beer outside in the sunshine.
Fondest memory: Nothing much really apart from friends and family! However, I do enjoy walking along the canal pathways and through Hopwas woods.
