“Shopping Splurge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Good place to go for nik-nak shops, vintage clothing and unusual items. Some nice places to eat down the laines. You could probably spend all morning there and everytime we go there is aways something difference to see.

“Shabby chic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Cold but dry day - perfect for a visit as it wasn't too crowded. Lots of quirky shops and cafes. Found several bookshops - definite plus!

“Old Curiosity Shops”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

It's hard to think of a more original selection of shops all gathered together so closely in an accessible area. Second hand, new age, hip and plain weird there's something of everything. Where else could you find used 1980's Uzbek soup bowls or French 1950s wall charts? And lots of intriguing little cafes too.
