Well worth a visit. Some nice art on display. Lots of small art boutiques down by the port. Did not have time to wander around too much but would like to return.

Great town. Free parking. Lovely walking down the river. Lots of biscuit shops with free samples Lots of art galleries to wonder around. Not great for small children although there was a small play park which they played in after our picnic lunch.
