When you’ve finally exhausted yourself from your retail therapy, why not sit down and refuel in one of the 30 restaurants catering for a large variety of tastes from steaks to seafood or fast foods to simple sandwiches, and much much more. Why not try your hand at ice skating in the full-size rink, and if the children are getting a little tiresome, there’s always the little galleria play area to keep them entertained. If you want to do it all again the next day, then why not stay at one of the two hotels in the Galleria.
