Picturesque avenue with interesting wee shops and buildings. You can hire bikes here at Avenue Cycles to help you get around the island on your trip

It was fun cycling down The Avenue but it is looking a bit tired and tatty and there aren't that many shops. .The ones that are open sell basic souvenirs and some silverware.

Unfortunately, the shops aren't very attractive and appealing, but at least they are there! They do have a nice little jewelry shop and souvenir shop but yes, closed businesses are high in numbers. But really, you should blame the Barclay Brothers for this, not the...More
