Very interesting area with antique shops , junk shops , atmospheric bars and restaurants. Follow the footsteps of Foyle in Foyle's war . Visit the most untidy second hand bookshop in Britain and marvel at the cost of New Age oddities.

We enjoyed walking in the old town on our own, but also with a guide (she gave us wonderful info about the architecture of the town). But be warned: when the shops close on a Sunday evening the old town becomes a rather rundown place...More

Great place to wander the streets. A lot more character than the new town. Plenty of good cafes, bakers (try Judges for amazing soda bread and cakes) and bars as well as the multiple fish and chip shops.

Walk eastwards along the sea front to the net sheds, take the railway up to the east hill, admire the views from the cliff top, and walk down the steps, down Crown Lane and turn right into All Saints Street, full of old cottages. When...More

Lots of coffee shops, restaurants, original and eclectic shops to browse in or watch the world go by. Buskers and local entertainment going on to watch and sing to! Always something different to see. We like Hanushka Coffee Shop and Whites Seafood Restaurant.
