I love this street! You can walk it every day and just turn down one street and get a bunch of new restaurants, pubs, and sights. The street performers are my favorite. There are several in every street. Bring your camera and some change to...More

Busy, bustling & colourful. Even on a grey day this street is teeming with life. Cafe culture, buskers, shoppers, strollers. A lovely place to sit & have a drink or a meal & take it all in

The place was jumping all afternoon and evening. Great busking and a really great vibe about the place. Great selection of pubs and restaurants to choose from as well.

Really good atmosphere, the quays bar is definitely a stop off at the end of the night. Turns into a nightclub but with band music.

Yes!! It was bustling every time we were there, and when talking to some restaurant servers in the area it seems to always be.
