The Barbican is an ideal place if you are looking for somewhere to get food and somewhere to have a drink. Most bars in the summer have outdoor seating with views of the water.

Some really old and quaint buildings. Plenty of cafes and old pubs. Loads of history easily spend a day there and still not see everything.
