Easily walkable centre with incredible buildings everywhere you look. Really lovely place to sit at a pub/cafe terrace with a beer for an hour or two.

Beautiful town centre. The city itself is nothing much but this central area is stunning. Very long promenade, lots of great bars, restaurants. Lots of people and dogs to watch, they seem to love their dogs, the bigger the better. Don’t miss this.
