Casemates square is a great place to eat, drink or simply watch the world go by. On a hot sunny day there is nowhere better to people watch & enjoy the shops

A great meeting point, close to bus station and at the end of Main Street. Restaurants for every taste, a colourful crowd, frequent free events, and a nice breeze blows through in the height of Summer.

Park benches at intervals, but can be dirty, smelly and with many flies around the rubbish bins as not clean....There are shops and little nooks and crannies to visit. main street for shopping is attached and easy to access. we were lucky...
