The summer holidays are upon us, and whether you’re jetting off abroad with the family, stay-cationing in the UK, or hoping to get tanned from your back garden (let’s hope we get some sun this month!) here’s your ultimate summer essentials guide courtesy of our on-site tenants.
From JD Sports and Sports Direct to your beauty summer essentials from Boots, we have everything you need to look good and feel good this summer season!
Must-haves from: JD sports
Press ‘play’ on summer with JD Sports’ summer collection. From footballs and tennis rackets to your favourite swimwear, tees, shorts and loads more for the whole fam — JD Sports is a one-stop shop for loading up that suitcase.

Summer is all about those bright and bold colours — and this season, Adidas has the best colour palette to match. This men’s Triangle Back T-shirt will level up any look, whether it’s paired with some shorts ready for a day by the beach, or with comfy cargos for hitting the town.
Now for women’s wear… I think we can all agree that nothing says Adidas more than its iconic 3-Stripes — that’s why this Adidas Originals yellow slim dress is not a want but a *need* for your summer wardrobe! Perfect for styling up or down.
