A good source of information and tour booking. They also sell water for a reasonable amount and you can store luggage for a small fee.

The people working here are very polite and informative. They also have brochures for many activities as well as simple guide books. I would suggest stopping in even if you have a good guide book.

This was well worth a visit for first timers like us to the city. An informative map was only 50p and the assistant was very helpful with advice.
