These three streets - Quay, High, and Shop are loaded with bars, buskers, and souvenir shops. It's crowded which makes it high energy and good for people watching. I think a couple of hours to wander, shop, and have a beer would be sufficient.

Pronounced "Key", this small street offers pubs and restaurants to suit most. It's a busy street both day and night, with summer crowd making both the pubs/restaurants and the street very crowded. Popular with tourists and locals, with the Quays bar being a typical meeting...More

Busy, bustling & colourful. Even on a grey day this street is teeming with life. Cafe culture, buskers, shoppers, strollers. A lovely place to sit & have a drink or a meal & take it all in
