There are plenty of signs to the Visitor's Centre from the station and the main street. The visitors centre has pamphlets for various walks including historical and maritime walks which makes it easy to explore the area.

No, we don't want to buy real estate. No, we don't like condescending volunteers and yes, we would like something other than a street map and piles of advertising. They're MUCH friendlier in the library right inside the town hall. Maybe I was just there on a bad day. I hope so.

We picked up some information from the kiosk outside from a very helpful man, but it was several days before I actually went inside. All tours can be booked, plus accommodation, which I wish we had done as we booked our accommodation 6 months in advance and still did not get our specified two bedroom. Lesson learned, go to visitors... More
