Interesting to walk around and view all the old buildings from the outside. Try and get down to the weir which is huge and a great spot for photos. If you are too hot it is also a great place to go for a swim.

Very neglected town centre compared to other local towns. Very quiet! More of a commercial and industrially based town than a tourist town

Despite my jetlag I was completely taken with this city. And everyone we met was friendly and helpful. It's the sort of place I picture in fairy tales.
