Movenpick Ice Cream

Movenpick The Barracks

Who can resist ice cream when it's this good?

With the kids still on summer holidays, there’s little chance you’ll be able to sneak away to The Barracks without them in tow, so you’ll be pleased there are things on offer for them too (and you’ll probably need a break from shopping anyway). Ice cream is the ultimate treat, and Movenpick’s commitment to perfecting the art of swiss ice cream guarantees both kids and adults will be satisfied. Pick from classics like Swiss chocolate or Caramelita, and take some respite in the undercover seating area before picking up where you left off!

Pure Flowers isn't all fresh blooms; you'll also find a range of unique homewares and giftware inside.

Many people resolve to stop and smell the flowers; and that can certainly be ticked off at Pure Flowers.
