Interesting architecturally and historically and it used to have some interesting specialist shops but whether they have closed for the winter or closed completely I don't know - but was disappointed. So have a look on the way to the Cathedral but I don't recommend...More

Narrowly escaping the developers in the 19th C. This street is arguably the most attractive in GB. A real preserved gem and adjacent to the medieval castle and cathedral.

Elem Hill and Waggon and Horses Lane are the most photograhed areas of the "fine city". Wear flat shoes, Elm Hills famous cobbles (now concreted firmly - back in the day they were loose..) are ankle killers to heel wearers! The shops are a delight,...More
