Great historic location. Great architecture - amazing when you think it was all rebuilt less than 100 years ago. Lots of food and drink outlets. Ideal place to spend your evenings when visiting this area.

Wonderful square carefully rebuilt after the devastation of the First World War now it's full of life, vibrant and convinced me to stay an extra night in the area.

I had wanted to see the Cloth Hall in person for a long time. It was stunning! I especially enjoyed relaxing alone in the courtyard and reflecting on times past, imagining the sounds of constant artillery bombardment.
