In the Red Brick Warehouse district this large building contains shops crammed full of local and cute wears. However, we enjoyed the Teddy Bear museum on the second floor which featured a large selection of original bears decorated by artists and famous people.

Usual shopping - souvenirs, chocolates and knick-knacks for the adults. On the second floor, there is a teddy bear museum. Some great photo opportunities with the over-sized bears. Good place to bring some life into bored children while walking back to the hotel.
