If you haven't done lots of research on the internet, this is the place to gather info about, buses, places of interest, restaurants and hiring of cars and bicycles. The staff had good English, and had timetables and leaflets to give you.

From boat trips to exploring a wartime bunker,there are leaflets to interest all holiday makers.You can ask the friendly staff for further information, and the place is located right near the big wheel, near the port.

Situated 2 minutes walk from the train station, its staff are very nice and knowledgeable. It helps to go there to get a best understanding of all the islands you can go to. Tickets for all sorts of events available there
