I loved the Historic Village - We just walked around looking at the lovely lil shops. Can’t wait to come back here to eat, catch a movie or enjoy the markets 🖤

Went yesterday to the market at the historic village, quite dissappointed with the small number of stalls. Highlight for us was the buildings and streets to wander through and the mussel fritters at the end!

Its a nice, quaint place to visit and the highlights are some of the artsy shops within the village. There is also a nice cafe in the complex too and the Cult Cinema shows are worth a visit. However, some of the shops seem to...More
