Worth a visit. Lots of stalls and shops if you wander around. Several cafes also available for snacks etc. Parking near the centre is a fixed rate of £2 a day so you will have plenty of time to explore.

It would seem that the original building that housed the major pannier market is having extensive works so the surrounding shops were all open but we missed all the stalls hopefully work will soon be completed.
