“Good cafes in this area”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

This is a nice area to visit with a good atmosphere with the cafes and the boats. There is also a part for the children. We enjoyed a lunch at one of the cafes looking over the water.

“A great place to visit!”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

I love the Town Basin! All the restaurants are great and the waterfront is beautiful. I always take the family to eat luch there, or meet friends and have business meetings there in one of the many great cafes.There's something for everyone there!

“Beautiful!”

Lots to see and do. Clean and lost of parking. The shops are well priced and worth a visit.
The yachts are a beautiful sight too.

Good little walk. Everything here is always closed though. Is close to the shops a town but really is only a half an hour activity
