An interesting gallery included in tourist information and a cafe. Inside many pictures and paintings; books, gifts etc. Very helpful informative staff. Outside two gardens - one for a few picnicers - the other interesting artefact that seems for walking on.

There was an excellent display concerning the environment and mans interaction with it. It was mainly concerned with the damage we are doing to the seas and wildlife with plastic. There is also a tourist information office, cafe and gallery.
