There was a lot to see even though the shops were already closed. I took a lot of lovely pictures there and added some of them here.

Lovely opportunity to walk through time/history and see how were people leaving 100 years ago. Very interesting for kids and especially to visit classroom from 1840. Perfect place to spend day off with kids.

Very pleasant assembly of old buildings. Great atmosphere! Like taking a trip in a time machine. Well worth a visit and a stroll. Peek into the shops and have a coffee somewhere.
