Shop til you drop

By comparison with many shopping centres this is not large. Lots of quality shops and eateries on the second floor.

If you're not going out for dinner or visiting someone who lives there I can't see much point in going here these days, it's pretty clean and quite posh I suppose

A pity that hardly anything has been preserved from the heyday of the great liners that once left from here to destinations all over the world. Now just modern apartment blocks with millionaire toys moored in front.

A great place to visit on a sunny day. Several eateries around the harbour where you can sit in the sun and enjoy the view whilst enjoying a meal or just a beer or glass of wine. There are two cinemas here also. Well worth a visit.

Apart from a couple of bars, restaurants and boats there's not a lot going on. There's a lot of construction so not even nice views.
