  • We went on the floating Grace river canal cruise. It was magical. Staff were amazing funny and warm and welcoming. We has a 3 course meal.and it was delicious. The service could not of been better. Every plate cleared. Full recommended. It was part of my birthday treat and I loved it. Fully recommended
  • Nice place to walk around and lots to see. Plenty of places all along to stop and have a drink, snack, or a nice sit down dinner. Very easy to spend 5-6 hours walking all around this area and up near city centre. Taxi's, buses, hotels, all within easy reach. I'd only recommend going when it is a bit warmer than late January.
