Plenty of restaurants and bars and tourist shops - but more upmarket than some places we have been. Eating in the street, be prepared for the traffic at certain times of the day.

Visited Dorp Street and local historical walk including Frederick' Fort. Would have been much more interesting if the places of interest were open. Unfortunately they were all closed at weekends and bank holidays.
