Truly lovely. The buildings are quaint and attractive. There is a real bustle around and about. Lovely restaurants and cafes, alongside boutique shops and craft sellers.

Like stepping back in time. Surrounded by carriages, balloon vendors, musicians, and interesting characters all round. Just have a seat and people watch.
