This is a pleasant place to sit and people watch if you want to rest your legs for a few minutes. But it’s definitely not a destination of its own right so I wouldn’t recommend making a special detour.
This is was a missed opportunity....it could have been converted into a haven of peace, instead we have a bit of grass, buses driving close by, lots of gulls and other sea birds ready to feast on your chips ......and a lot of litter blowing...More
