Very pretty buzzing location. Little crafts in the river and lots of cafes and bars! The weather was splendid when we visited which was obviously a bonus in making it a pleasure.

Lots of restaurants to choose from, with outside seating and a good view over the Brayford. Also regular events such as old cars. Boat trips also available but have not yet had one. In prime location nearby to the main shopping street

Good range of food establishments including a wetherspoons, two hotel choices and also the ODEON cinema, all making for a good visit without having to find somewhere to park in town. Town is walking distance away (10 minutes max) if you felt so inclined.
