Lots of things going on, including the library, restaurant, gift shop, art exhibition. We visited the mechanical circus, this was great, there are selfie opportunities with a circus theme. You can activate the demonstrations. A nice free activity for both adults and children.

Nice airy building which on the day we went had a Christmas crafts market on. My friend and I had a good look around and really enjoyed ourselves, only wish we had found it earlier as we were on a tight schedule.

A lively place with something always going on. A great coffee shop and the tourist information staff are so helpful. The library is superb and it would be so easy to spend the day in the Forum and not get bored

I went for the library only I didn't find the Forum Library very conducive to study, research or just reading. A hum of chatter, noise, people walking about aimlessly meeting others. There was no one actually reading anything, except those in armchairs, snoozing over the...More
