A wealth of gorgeous architecture, hidden gems, super friendly bars, great food and atmosphere. Plus the best vintage shops, which have admittedly got more expensive in the 18 years I have been visiting...

Loved staying here for the weekend. It's weird how one part of town can be, how do I say, a bit rough? Then the old town is refreshingly different. Lots of quirky shops, nice looking pubs and activities for all ages. A lovely part of...More
