Lovely to watch the ships, and the large open space to enjoy an ice cream seemed very popular with families

Lovely open space with a lot of scenery. Good place for kids. Playground etc. Defo get an ice cream! The guy who serves them is lovely and it's reasonably priced. Watch for parking attendance they are on the ball and will ticket you.

Essentially a rectangular grassy area with car parking. Gives good views of the ships and is good value parking for the ferries.
