On better days there is a large variety of shops and places to eat and drink in the square and it boarders the gardens that run through to the pier so plenty of space to breathe and enjoy the outdoors as long as it's dry.

A much changing environment, When we visited the weather was poor but there were still plenty of people around. There is places to eat and drink in the square but we didn't use these facilities.

One of the better shopping areas in a seaside resort. Has just about everything. We went pre Christmas and the decorations were nice as was the street market. It's also a great place to catch buses to go further afield or to the train station....More
