There is so much to experience here. Make sure to pay the small amount to visit the Basilica--it is fabulous. Cloth Hall is also a great place to spend some time shopping. Tons of restaurants to choose from so you won't go hungry.

Loads to see and do and always something going on! The castle very impressive and the short tours on the Golf Buggies are worth the money!
