A lovely place to spend some time wandering through the quaint and different shops and be entertained by the impromptu theatre acts, but difficult to move around as it is very busy.

Perhaps it's just the time of year, but the crafts market was pitiful, loads of empty stalls. Street entertainment is just glorified begging.
