It is nice to see the improvements to Castle Park both in terms of the grassed areas and the cycle path. The park is a nice place to sit and relax whilst watching the world go by. There always seems to be something interesting going on. They do appear to be excavating and restoring the old Castle Keep which has... More

Between the shops and the river, and on a sunny day lots of people come out of their offices to sunbathe on the grass. I like to stroll along the riverside and watch the passing boats. You can also watch maniacs doing parkour over the stone walls... Why Castle Park? Well, there used to be a castle - but Cromwell... More

We had a look around the castle ruins, then browsed the lovely "Physic Garden" full of sweet-smelling plants and flowers, then sat on a rustic bench overlooking the actual green and the very pretty bandstand! It was an idyllic day, full of sunshine and happy people!

I love this area. With the old St Peters church looking over the many people either stop and have lunch on the grassed areas or sit and enjoy the sunshine. Right in the middle of a busy working area and off the shopping area. Lovely just to take time out and enjoy some peace.
