Disappointing to discover in the late August bank holiday week nothing special going on, although plenty of people and the cafes and restaurants were all very busy.

Brilliant for shopping, eating or just watching the world go by. The town centre & cathedral are within easy walking distance. There is also a retail park on the other side.

We enjoyed a walk around the docks and a peep at the nearby River Severn, coffee shops and restaurants around, as well as a Retail Outlet. Plenty of reasonably priced parking too
