This is a lovely part of the city and has developed really well over the last couple of years, with good quality bars and decent restaurants to choose from, not really for the young ones and you will pay a little more for your drinks, £4+ for a beer but Grey street has quality and style and very easily accessible...

The best view is now that from the outdoor terrace of The Botanist (shame about the smokers!), there... More
