We went in the evening after dinner and it was quiet! Not a person in sight. Not much to see, except the cathedral. Perhaps going in the day would have a different vibe.

The Cathedral Quarter is the best place to get a real feel for the city, plenty of shops, bars and restaurants, the best place to go in the evening if you are visiting for the first time.

Popped past here and the cathedrals are amazing after recommendation from bus Tour. They remind me of old church similar to those in York and it is only 5 mins walk from the City centre.

Cobbled lane ways filled with hidden restaurants, bars and cafes. In the centre you have all the main shops. Great place to wander and discover. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

Yep bars are busy enough. Some live music around. Probably best to try the thirsty goat or dirty onion. Also the Spaniard but it can get very crowded.
