Did a little bit of reminiscing walking through here recently. It has changed a lot over the years but it still has a little charm about the place. You do get a sense of going back in time as you enter through the gates, particularly...More

When I was younger this Arcade was so much better. Now it has stalls full of cheap junk. There are only a few original shops still there such as the music shop and piercing. It won’t take long to walk through.

Various shops and stalls selling a variety of items from gifts to second hand coins and badges. You will only spend a small amount of time here and there is nothing magical about this place but worth a visit.

I was expecting a bit more here and really it is just a slightly more pleasant flea market. It is people just selling used stuff mostly, which is not really my thing for a vacation.

This is a mid sized covered market with many little shops and kiosks and several place to get a snack or lunch. You can walk through the entire place in20 minutes. Worth a stop if you’re in the area but not worth a special trip.

Called at this new Boojum restaurant. Generally disappointed all round. There just seemed to be a rush and the food was being thrown into containers.Staff so intertested in getting your money, nothing else seemed to matter. The food was just okay. Won't rush back.
