There’s a lot to celebrate at the V&A Waterfront this December, with a number of their long-term projects reaching completion just in time for the festive season.

The focus of this is the opening of an exciting new Pick ‘n Pay flagship store, along with a new mall link in Victoria Wharf, brand new lifts in the Barrow Court, as well as a number of new, smaller stores.

The V&A Waterfront restaurants aren’t to be outdone either, with the imminent opening of Tashas Café and Mondiall.

As part of the development process, Breakwater Boulevard was closed to traffic, but this has now been reopened, and along with the new tunnel connecting Victoria Wharf and Breakwater garages, it will be easier than ever to navigate from your parking space into the heart of the mall.

On top of all the changes, festive plans have been going full-steam ahead with Summer Sunset Concerts in the amphitheatre, various activities for the younger members of the family taking place throughout the precinct, as well as the usual selection of exciting land, sea and air adventures.
