Lots of stalls selling everything for all the different genre that attend the Goth Weekend - Then at night plays host to bands, not to be missed. Shame about the parking, but you cant have everything

Great event for everyone in a lovely setting overlooking the sea. On site café and good clean facilities. Only problem can be access due to one lift if the event that you are attending is held downstairs, prefer the Northern Lights Suite
