Always is fun to come over to visit the stores and coffee places in the First Station, one of the main sites in Jerusalem for the locals to walk around, and tourists when they will be back

What a surprise for us! Our tour guide mentioned visiting the First Station - just a five minutes walk from our hotel. It doesn't look too much from the outside, but what a surprise. Restaurants, shops, play space for children and artisan kiosks and this was in February. I would love to see this in the summer. And the biggest surprise was walking into an unassuming store and discovering the Israeli version of Whole Foods. I loved it. It's called Teva Castel. You have to spend time here. Plan lunch and shopping time - you'll be glad you did.

As mentioned, it is a historical venue that has been modernised with entertainment options. When we went end of February, many of the vendor stalls were closed or empty. When I asked one of them, they confirmed it does get quite bust over summer. There were things like clothing, handmade jewellery, small hand crafted items etc. There is an "amphitheatre" where people can just pick up the mic and do a performance. You are unlikely to see Celine Dion there but who knows? There are a few stores selling branded items and bespoke things. Honestly nothing to write home about. There a a number of eating places from creperies to ice cream (the Excellent Vaniglia) to pizza and other types of food. There is probably something to appeal to everyone. That being said, I wouldn't make a dedicated trip here but as we were 5 minutes away, we past through twice.

This historic complex has so much to offer and so much history. An Ottoman railway station between 1882 and 1982, it was converted into an entertainment complex around 2013 and boasts an array of restaurants and shops. We walked from our hotel many times to enjoy the food and ambiance, It was always very busy and great for large groups.

Very disappointing. Nothing special for adults other than vendors. Few kosher restaurants. We did take out from two of the kosher restaurants : pricey and not particularly good food. Maybe with younger children the arcade and rides might be of interest.
